New Renal Unit for Bojanala Patients

G Bothman

The ANC`s commitment to bring services closer to the people, is gradually bearing fruit, as people with kidney ailments living in Bojanala in the North West will no longer have to travel outside the district or province to get dialysis treatment, thanks to a new renal unit.

This is due to a new state of the art renal unit at Job Shimankana Tabane Hospital in the Bojanala District. This unit will respond to the dire need for dialysis treatment in the district and ease the burden on the Klerkdorp/Tshepong complex, currently the only state renal unit providing such a service in that province.

The ANC believes that this project is a step in the right direction and will go a long way in enabling people of the greater Rustenburg area and Bojanala District to have highly specialised service at an economically acceptable standard, while helping them to have improved quality of life.
