As the DA in the Western Cape, we welcome today’s sod turning event in Pelican Park, which signals the start of construction of the planned clinic in the area.
I commend the City of Cape Town’s Health Department for officially commencing construction on the clinic. This proves how committed the DA is to ensuring that residents have access to health services within their respective communities.
Just like the recently launched Beaufort West clinic, the Pelican Park facility will also have a number of green and eco-friendly equipment, such as energy-efficient intelligent lighting and the reuse of irrigation water. This also confirms the DA’s commitment to caring for the environment.
It is even more pleasing to note the number of projects the City has lined up in communities such as Khayelithsa, Uitsig and Fisantekraal. Along with the Western Cape Department of Health’s facility development plans in Napier, Prince Albert, Wolseley, Thembalethu and Wellington, it will allow more residents to have access to person-centered quality care.
As the DA in the Western Cape, we remain committed to ensuring that all residents have access to quality health facilities and services.
