Golf cart donation

Golf cart donation set to go a long way

Groote Schuur Hospital (GSH) received a donation of two more golf carts that are to be used for patient transport, especially those people who need assistance in walking long distances.

Alaric Jacobs, communications officer for GSH, told the Tatler that the four- and six-seater golf carts that were received were donated by the Wembley Group on Tuesday October 11, and will be used to transport patients and visitors from the entrance on the E-floor in the new main building of the hospital to the various lifts and wards.

Theuns Botha, MEC for Health, said the Western Cape government is grateful for every contribution that improves patients’ experience at public hospitals.
