  • Good day, Im 11 weeks pregnant and do not have a medical aid and would like to deliver to your hospital. How much do you charge if I don’t have a medical aid and want to deliver natural birth.

    • Hi David. You should consult with a specialist (urologist) who is based at or near the hospital. The urologist will be able to assist you with your problem and utilise the hospital facilities if necessary.

  • We were at the emergency room today with our son. The nurses were very nice, polite and helpful but we are not happy with the service we got from the doctor that assisted us. He didn’t even introduce himself to us and we couldn’t hear a word when he spoke. He didn’t communicate properly with us and didn’t even explain what we must do at home with our son’s injury.
