#30I'm signing because the community needs this healthcare facility. Many people are unable to go to other facilities because this 1 is convenient and in their areas. I grew up in Rocklands and this has been our healthcare facility since I was little and my kids attend now.
Madineah Swartz (Cape Town, 2022-01-13)
#33I'm a Mitchell's Plain resident with family members attending the Eastridge Clinic. What happens to the patient's when these clinics close? How will the health be monitored? Where will they get their medication?
Zaakiyah Emjedi (Colorado Park Mitchell's Plain, 2022-01-13)
#34It's our political right to have a government clinic in our area as we don't have access to private institutions due to poverty.
Tasleema Fortune (Cape Town, 2022-01-13)
#38As a resident and concerned member of the public, not everyone can afford to go to clicks or a pharmacy. I hereby attach my signature and confirm my disapproval of the shutdown of the Clinic.
Bronwyn Brown (Cape town, 2022-01-13)
#41It's so unfair that a community that's already living in Poverty will have to fork out more money to travel to different clinics. The purpose of the clinic is to see to the well being of our kids and for the less fortunate without medical aid. If the COCT really works for the community I would like to know on which basis this decision were made and the people that agreed to it?
Charmaine Van der Vindt (Cape Town, 2022-01-13)
#42I'm also using Rocklands clinic alot a have two children under 10 years old... I don't need money to get there we just walk and my baby don't have to be sick very long because I can take them immediate.... But if it closes its gonna be a very big problem because then I need taxi fee for 3 people that gonna cost me 60 rand that I don't have because I don't work then my children gonna be sick or die because I don't have money to get to the clinic
Joy Klein (Capetown , 2022-01-13)
#43The closure will have a sever impact on all other under resourced CHC,S within Mitchell's Plain and surrounding areas.
Community health Centre , especially in areas where the service is a necessity, CANNOT be shut down.
The elderly and parents of infants will now have to find alternative means of having to get to a health facility , at the early hours of the morning, using public transportation, with the hopes of being seeing too by a medical professional.
This decision MUST be reversed and the affected facilities be upgraded, instead of being shut down.
MARIO OOSTENDURP (Cape Town, 2022-01-13)
#44How stupid. Where must these people travel to. They hardly have food and now they must spend money on a taxi to the nearest clinic. It just shows, once the votes are in the City does what pleases it and forget about the needs of the people.
Feroza Green (Cape Town , 2022-01-13)
#46As an ex-nurse I feel that it isn't necessary for the people in my community must travel out of their area to go to other clinics which already is overcrowded. We deserve the right to Healthcare facilities in our own communities.
Priscilla Maart (Cape Town , 2022-01-13)
#47I don't agree with the shutdown of the clinics.Health services are very important for the community.My grandchild is asthmatic & she's using the services & also other mothers for their babies.
Johanna Roelse (Cape Town, 2022-01-13)
#48I'm signing because my 8month old daughter goes to Rocklands Clinic for her check ups and injections. It will be inconsiderable of you to shut the clinic doors as my child has a folder at Rocklands clinic and the staff work ethic is indeed of excellent service. Therefore for me personally I disagree with this notion of closing Rocklands clinic.
Kurk Witbooi (Cape Town, 2022-01-13)

Jacques Africa (Cape town, 2022-01-13)

#62Mitchells Plain already has a tremendous shortage of infrastructure. You just have to look at the very long queues and long waiting periods at clinics.
Gavin Elie (Cape Town, 2022-01-13)

Gasant Hendricks (Cape town, 2022-01-13)
#68My autistic 3 year old receives speech therapy at Eastridge clinic as its the only available option. Red Cross and Lentegeur District Hospital both referred me to Eastridge clinic. If the clinic closes so many underprivileged kids and mothers that need the vital server's they provide will be left without the needed medical care they needed.
Athena Stone (Cape Town, 2022-01-13)

Zubeida Arendse (Mitchells Plain, 2022-01-13)
#78People in our area need the clinic we don't all have money to go to a doctor and pay r400 for a doctor so we need our clinics open
Leight Neud (Cape town, 2022-01-13)
#79How can clinics be closed when it is placed there for a reason. Sending people to other area clinics will then mean over crowded clinics what happened to social distancing? What happened to covid still being out there and constant new variants being man made? This makes no sense if they cutting costs its really a dumb decision
Lecritia Roberts (Cape Y , 2022-01-13)
#83Why dont they close the red zone area clinics, the cost the city more, upgrades are always needed, security personnel always is increasing. That is not cost effective if the City want to save money. Eastridge delivers services for alot of areas, Clients living as far as Crossroads, Samora, Tafelsig, Mzamomhle and Phumlani attends this facility, because of the excellent quality off services
Janine Isaacs (Cape Town, 2022-01-13)
#85Closing the clinics is not an option. There's already not enough medical facilities to service Mitchell's plain

Maryann Swartz (Cape Town, 2022-01-14)
#96I feel its unjust to our people from Mpln to close down our health facilities, Where should our old people go and those less fortunate who can walk to the day hospital.
Mitchell's Plain is a city on its own so we need our Day hospitals to accommodate the numbers.

#106I am not happy with the closure of clinics, people are already living in poverty, no money for food let alone having no money to travel. This is in sane the white areas where the rich live have clinics and money. You wanna close the clinics that are serving the poor people for so many years.. I am appalled as to thinking. What Has Become Of Our Beloved Counrty, we are saying NO to the closing of these clinics. People are alrealy struggling to get jobs, where would they get money to travel to the day hospital that is far from the clinic. Where ARE ALL THESE POLITICAL PARTIES that our people VOTED FOR. WHAT ARE THEY SAYING.
Helen Engelbrecht (Cape Town, 2022-01-14)

Lynn Hendricks (Cape Town , 2022-01-15)
#120There are too many people who will be disadvantaged by the closure of these 2 clinics. The risk of untreated diseases (TB, etc) and medical problems will increase. Transportation to get to a clinic will become a big problem for the less fortunate. Over crowded clinic, frustrated staff and angry patients on the remaining open clinic. Population is growing and service delivery is already a major problem. Please dont make it worse.
Maryon Sedres (Cape town, 2022-01-15)
#121its not fair to us as woman that need the clinic
BERENICE JOHANNES (CAPE TOWN , 2022-01-15)

Dilshaad November (Cape Town, 2022-01-15)
#133Those clinics at the door step of our communities are needed...
The City of Cape Town wants to privatize primary health care, this is reckless and selfish.

#138Where am I supposed to go if our clinic closes?
Juanay Russell (Cape Town , 2022-01-17)
#139That the only place where we take our children it close and safe and in service is quick. Especially when our kids get hurt at school that's where the educators take them if the Dr is close they open late. We don't want to lose ou clinic plz.

Nazerine Goliath (Rocklands Mitchell's Plain, 2022-01-21)
#164It's convenient and close by for our people with TB and aids (HIV), mommy's with baby and young kids immunization.
If you take this away. Our people won't go and will get more sick.
Only change the staff. Coz they damn rude and have no passion for people. Give me the job. I will run that clinic and work for my community. But u employ people who don't have a passion yet they get the jobs.
Gail Augustyn (Cape Town , 2022-01-21)
#166How can the city close these facilities when the community need it in the area. These facilities are the life line for those who are in need of medical care.
Charmaine Solomons (Mitchell's plain Cape town, 2022-01-22)
#167Rocklands Clinic is convenient and near to me so if it should shut down I'll have to give out taxifair to get to nearest clinic or hospital and what if I don't have money and my child very sick.So think about the mother's that don't work or the grannies that is looking after their grandchildren.
