Due to the fact that the Department of Health has closed St Augustine’s hospital for any new patients, our practice has been forced to base ourselves at Umhlanga Hospital. This will enable us to treat relatively urgent cases, usually requiring admission (complying with DOH health care risk guidelines). All elective procedures have been curtailed at ALL hospitals.
We are available to assist referring practitioners with consultations for their patients. Urgent cases should be discussed with the receiving doctor directly.
The more elective consultations will involve a 3 step process, ie: an initial screening by the receptionist followed by a telephonic consultation with one of the accepting doctors and if the need then arises, a patient will be seen in person at the rooms or in hospital.
We remain at your service in these difficult and uncertain times.
