CPUT’s student health services are expanding to the satellite campuses.

This month a new clinic will open its doors at the university’s Athlone Campus, followed by the opening of a clinic at the George Campus in July.

A further two clinics will open during 2017 at Worcester and Granger Bay Campuses.

The expansion of student health services will bring the number of clinics at CPUT to eight. Currently the university has clinics at the Cape Town, Mowbray, Bellville and Wellington Campuses.

Acting Head of Student Health Services, Andries Slinger, says the department is excited about the roll-out of new clinics, which will ensure that they have a permanent base at the various satellite campuses.

Currently CPUT health practitioners visit the satellite campuses to assist students. Students at satellite campuses are also allowed to access health services at any of the CPUT campus clinics.

Slinger says the clinics at the satellite campuses will be staffed by highly qualified health practitioners and administrative staff, and will offer a wide range of primary health care services to students.

Health services available to all CPUT students include general medical consultations, TB-DOTS supervision, HIV counseling and testing, family planning, wound dressings and assistance with all categories of injuries. Emergency services are also available for both staff and students.
