The Lansdowne Clinic is closed from today to Friday 24 February to upgrade the floor. Services will continue at the Honeyside satellite clinic during this time. Maintenance and retiling will take place at the clinic during its closure.Siyabulela Mamkeli, Mayco member (Central), says residents have been informed of the closure. “This primary healthcare facility has a community-oriented programme aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of families in the Lansdowne and Flamingo areas. The community has been informed of the upcoming closure on a daily basis when they visited the clinic and posters advising of the closure were put up at businesses and in the community. Regular patients who are currently on treatment were informed telephonically,” Mamkeli says. He says to minimise the impact on patients, all services will be running at the Honeyside clinic on the corner of Belgravia and Honeyside roads in Athlone. “Residents can also make use of other clinics in their areas. For example, residents from Hanover Park can visit the Hanover Park Clinic,” Mamkeli says. The clinic’s services include women’s health, curative services, immunisation, a wellness clinic, outreach programmes and interventions in schools.“During this month-long upgrade, the entire floor of the facility will be redone,” Mamkeli says. This will cost just over R94 000 and will help in making the floors easy to clean.
