ETHEKWINI NEWS FLASH
 
For immediate release
 
11 MAY 2016
 
EThekwini Clinics Operational
 
The Sea Cow Lake, Seaview, Clairwood and Bester Clinics are all fully operational despite recent reports that the four City clinics were closed.
While the leases for the properties, where the clinics are operating from have expired, it has not hampered service delivery. The four clinics continue to operate from their primary buildings.
 
The City has prioritised the matter and will be utilising Section 36 of the Municipal Supply Chain Management Regulations to enter into agreements with the landowners which include two religious organisations, a non-governmental organisation and a trust for the use of their premises.
 
Section 36 allows for official policies to be overlooked if an unexpected and sudden event must be dealt with urgently and where there is an immediate threat to life.
 
City Health officials at the various clinics will continue to go beyond the call of duty, offering high quality primary health care services in their respective communities.
 
Services offered include:
• Treatment for minor illness,
• Advice on children’s growth and development,
• Immunisation,
• Family planning,
• Antenatal care,
• Voluntary counselling, and
• HIV testing.
