Notes from George Mediclinic on what to do when you experience symptoms.

If you are experiencing symptoms like sore throat, coughing and fever, the best advice would be to self-isolate at home. If you have been in contact with foreigners or have recently returned from abroad and have symptoms you are welcome to have yourself tested at the George Mediclinic Emergency Centre between 08:00 and 16:00. The test samples leaves from George to Cape Town every day at 17:00 and the results will only be available within 72 hours. After 16:00 please only visit the Emergency Centre if you have severe symptoms.

If possible, pre-notify the Emergency Centre (044) 803 2053 that you are on your way for the test. We have set up a designated safe area where the tests are done to avoid walking through the hospital. Please follow displayed directions.

This service is for private paying or medical aid patients and the same service and procedure is available at George Provincial Hospital. The cost at Mediclinic is R 1000 with R 250 extra if you do not have a file. The cost at the Provincial hospital is free.

Please note that no hand sanitiser or face masks are being sold at Mediclinic George to the public or any health care professionals.
