KNYSNA | PLETTENBERG BAY NEWS - Western Cape Minister of Health, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo, this morning (12 August) visited healthcare facilities in and around Knysna.
The minister was also in Plettenberg Bay yesterday.
The visits were held with the intention of the MEC opening newly refurbished facilities, while also talking about the Behavioural Change Campaign.
As part of her visits to Plettenberg Bay yesterday, she visited New Horizons Clinic and Kwanokuthula CDC and opened the newly-upgraded Kranshoek Clinic.
“It is important for us as government to ensure that the healthcare package offered in our facilities suit the needs of our communities, we have to constantly expand our services, that is why we pride ourselves in what we offer our patients. We continuously strive to offer the best services to all our clients in the best possible facilities,” Mbombo said yesterday.
Today, she visited the Khayalethu-, Hornlee-, and Knysna Town Clinics as well as the Knysna Provincial Hospital while accompanied by Garden Route District Mayor Memory Booysen and Dr Andries Brink, medical manager in the Knysna/Bitou sub-districts.
"Just because we are based in the metro areas and things have been difficult there, we have not forgotten about the Garden Route and the good work staff here have done," Mbombo said.
Booysen echoed these sentiments, saying: "Sometimes us politicians forget to recognise and give credit to those working on the frontline, but I would personally like to commend and thank all of you for the amazing work you have done".
