SOUTH Coast Hospice is proud to announce its new cancer-screening services will be available every Wednesday at its palliative care centre at Kingfisher House, 29 Connor Street in Port Shepstone.

Hospice fund-raiser, B.T. King, said this services will be managed by a professional sister Heidi Thom, who is qualified and experienced in palliative care.

Thom will also be facilitating the cancer support group at Hospice.

“We started our cancer screening services at the beginning of March and we will continue offering them. However, bookings have to be made through reception,” said King.

Hospice’s screening services include pap smears at R170, which includes a breast examination, and/or prostate tests at R170.

“If the patient wants to have a breast examination it is R50. Skin-cancer screenings are R50,” she said.

For more information, and to book, contact South Coast Hospice reception on 039 682 3031.
