MURCHISON District Hospital held an open day imbizo (gathering) at the hospital on Thursday.

The Murchison and surrounding area communities came to learn about health concerns affecting them and how to deal with them.

The main address was given by the hospital’s CEO Maureen Nxumalo and practitioners from the hospital.

Topics discussed included diabetes, HIV, high blood pressure and TB.

Hospital PRO Busisiwe Cele said the imbizo was beneficial for all.

“The event was a huge success as it was well attended by residents from all over the district. Informative sessions like these are crucial for the sustained health of community members as many may have had some questions about their condition and these got to be answered,” said Cele.

More of these gatherings will be held at the hospital in the new year.
