  • My mother , who does not have medical aid , has a heart condition and requires an angiogram to clarify the exact problem . She has been put on a waiting list to have one done at Greys hospital , but the waiting list extends into October . I am worried that this might be too long a wait , and would like to find out what the cash price would be to have it done at a private facility .
    Any advice would be gratefully accepted , thanks .

    • Hi Nadim. You will have to contact the hospital directly. We are an online directory of private hospitals in South Africa. We are not associated with the hospital or hospital group. If you are not on medical aid then the hospital will quote you for the cash rate on their maternity packages. This varies greatly among private hospitals but prepare to pay around R35,000. Good luck.
