Family Connect Line

Keeping you informed on the status of your loved ones hospitalised with COVID-19.

We understand that hospitalisation of your loved one can be very stressful, especially when you are possibly unable to reach them or our hospital to stay informed of their condition.

That’s why we have set up a dedicated, national “Family Connect Line” that will facilitate regular updates regarding your loved one in our care.

This is another way in which we at Netcare are striving to provide you with the best and safest care, and place you and your loved ones at the centre of everything we do.

Call the Family Connect Line on 0800 111 266.

Mondays to Fridays, 08:00 - 18:00
Saturdays and Sundays, 08:00 – 17:00

A personalised approach to health and care

At Netcare, we are striving to change healthcare for the better.

So, when you entrust your care to us, we acknowledge that YOU are as unique as your fingerprints, with your own personal circumstances, needs, fears and expectations about your health and care.

Our holistic view places YOU - as a person and not just a patient - in the centre of all we do, and encourage you to fully participate in your health and care journey with us.

Your health and well-being is important to us
