The Rotary Club of Uitenhage South is again hosting the local event of Rotary Family Health Days, which is a national initiative bringing a host of free health services into the community.

Rotary is aware of the great need for the public to access health services which far exceed those normally on offer in clinics, so each year we take part in a major national event offering a wide range of services which far exceed those normally available locally, and they can all be accessed free and without appointment.

Various health tests

The event has previously been held at the LoveLife centre in KwaNobuhle, but to make it available in a different part of town, this year it is being hosted at The Rosedale Recreation Hall in Kamesh Road.

The event will run from 09:00 till 15:00 on October 3rd & 5th.

Although there will be some normal clinic based services available such as immunisation, HIV testing, and contraception, there will also be breast cancer screening, pap smears and an audiologist.

Lots of other information will also be available, and there are various talks which can be attended, such as rehabilitation services awareness and drug abuse awareness.

This year for the first time, there will also be a strong emphasis on She Conquers – a programme for girls and young women.

The talks are at specific times, and not all of the services will be available every day, so those who really need those extra specialised services should come along and find out when they will be.
