    • Hi Moses. Please speak to the hospital directly. We only profile private hospitals in South Africa. We are not affiliated with the facility or any private health facility. You will probably need to speak to a specialist like a haematologist (“blood disease” specialist) or oncologist (cancer specialist) at the hospital for this matter.
