Media Alert: Groote Schuur Hospital Telephone Exchange Upgrade

21 November 2010

Groote Schuur Hospital will install its new telephone operating system on Wednesday, 24 November 2010 between 22h00 and 23h59. Installing the new operating system requires the telephone exchange system to be disabled while the upgrades are being installed and tested. This means that telephone calls to the hospital on the 021 404 9111 or any hospital number with 021 404 directly dialed extensions will not be answerable for that period.

However, in case of an emergency the public will be able to access the hospital by calling 021 447 5088.
