Help us to improve healthcare services at your clinic

25 August 2023

Healthcare workers in the Northern and Tygerberg Substructure want to ensure that you receive the best services when you visit your local community health centre.

Various communication channels are available to you to ensure your complaint, compliment or suggestion is attended to.

Regan Marcus, the community liaison officer for the Northern and Tygerberg Substructure, has encouraged everyone to share their feedback. “We welcome feedback because it's used to improve our services. If you wish to share your views and experiences, positive or negative, please make use of the available official communication channels or speak to the health committee member at your clinic. Our health committee members are there to ensure that your complaints are addressed and will support the clinic to find solutions.”

Regan adds that it’s important to use the correct channel to make your complaint. “We are ready to help you, but we need you to use the correct channels to share your complaint, start at your clinic manager or speak to your health committee member. There are many ways to share your feedback. Remember, you have the right to share your feedback, whether it’s positive or negative.”
