Visit to construction site of the District Six Community Health Centre

27 June 2016

On Wednesday, 29 June 2016,  Dr Nomafrench Mbombo, Western Cape Minister of Health and Donald Grant, Minister of Transport and Public Works will conduct an oversight visit to the site where the new R104 million District Six Community Health Centre is being built.

Commissioned by the Department of Transport and Public Works (DTPW) for the Western Cape Department of Health, the project began in November 2014 and the new facility is expected to be completed in January 2017. When it opens, the centre will provide services from 7:30am to 4:30pm for to up to 750 patients a day from Salt River, Woodstock, Vredehoek and central Cape Town. The pharmacy will have extended opening hours. The facility will boast specialised units for chronic disease, infectious disease, woman and child health, radiology, emergency treatment, oral health, and rehabilitation.

Because most provincial facilities are constructed and maintained by the DTPW until they have opened their doors to the public, Minister Grant will be showing Minister Mbombo around the construction site and providing a progress update. 

There will be opportunities for interviews and photographs.

Date: 29 June 2016
Time: 9:30am to 11:00am
Venue: District Six Community Health Centre site, Primrose Street, District Six, Cape Town
