Please book an appointment so that we are able to minimise the time required to wait for assistance, and to accommodate all those who require help.
Family planning issues are dealt with between 8am and 11am.
Emergencies do occur. Emergencies and students who are writing exams are taken as walk-ins. Emergency call outs require two sisters to leave the clinic and attend to the patient at the scene. We ask for your understanding should this cause in-clinic delays.
