Diazville Clinic reopens

Patients in Diazville, Saldanha again have access to primary health care at the local clinic.

The new pre-fabricated facility was re-opened on Monday (25 May). Eight consultation rooms, a waiting room and a reception area was constructed after the original clinic burnt down during housing protests two years ago. Along with the clinic, the Diazville Thusong Centre and library were also destroyed in the blaze.

“Staff of both Diazville and Saldanha clinics are excited about services resuming at Diazville Clinic, since Saldanha Clinic’s capacity was stretched to its limits in accommodating double the amount of patients,” Leensie Lotter, spokesperson for the regional health department, said.

According to Dr Silvio Morales-Perez, Manager of Medical Services for the Saldanha Bay Sub-district, the completion of the clinic and resuming of services in Diazville are taking place at the ideal time.

“With current Level 4 restrictions of movement due to the Coronavirus pandemic, resuming services for residents of Diazville means they don’t have to travel to Saldanha Clinic for services,” he said. Dr Morales-Perez added that due to the coronavirus preparation, only basic services currently being offered at all primary health-care facilities, will now be offered at Diazville Clinic.

Patients who need emergency life saving care, family planning services and antenatal care can attend the new facility, as can those who had their appointments confirmed previously at Saldanha Clinic.

As is currently the practice, patients on chronic medication will be given two months’ supply where possible.

Patients visiting the Diazville clinic must note that registration of patients will begin from scratch. Patients are therefore requested to bring their clinic card, ID/passport documents (or any other valid document), Road to Health booklet, birth certificate and any other clinic document they have with them, such as a copy of their prescription.

Proof of address will also be needed.
