2 Thoughts on “Port Alfred Hospital (Netcare) in Port Alfred, Eastern Cape”

  • Good evening
    My father (68yrs old) has had a fall off his motorcycle and has a swollen ankle from the fall.
    Please could you assist me with the prices of the following:
    1. Price for casualty visit for an assessment of his ankle
    2. An xray for his ankle and hiring of a moon boot if needed.
    I live far away and the family is worried and need to budget to assist him asap.

  • I tried to phone the hospital today without any success the phone is just ringing and ringing and ringing. I am not sure if you are still in business but nobody answers the phone
