Children’s Garden

Our rooms are welcoming but somedays there may be a waiting time for a pediatrician should the hospital call unexpectedly. To assist with the waiting we have a children’s garden with play equipment and a cozy thatch gazebo where Mom’s may enjoy a welcoming cup of tea. Please feel free to use this area it is for you… and you will not be forgotten or miss your appointment. Please don’t leave your children unattended in this area and keep the gate closed at all times.

Why we could run late?

Our paediatricians attend to hospital rounds, which include Paediatrics, Maternity and Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU), first thing in the morning.  For this reason, our doctors may run late attending to your scheduled appointment.

When we are running late our staff will always attempt to contact you to update you. Please make sure your cell phone is accessible on the day of your appointment. It is also suggested that you check with our rooms that the doctors are on time for your scheduled appointment (emergencies are unpredictable).  It is in everyone’s interest that patients do not  wait long periods in our rooms. A breastfeeding / changing area is available for your convenience.

When you need help after hours? 

After hours your port of call in the event of an emergency should be your family practitioner, failing this it should be the Sandton Medi Clinic Emergency Rooms. Our pediatricians on call will available for referral by the ER doctor or your family doctor.
