baby health clinic
It’s only been open since October and the fws Health Clinic has been a busy place for Nurses Mary & June. The word is out!
The opening hours have extended, patient numbers have soared and the locals know Nurse Mary so well, they are guiding her to the clinic when she gets lost! There was a week in March where the team drove a pregnant lady to the hospital whilst in labour, attended to smoke inhalation after a fire broke out in the local high school and even diagnosed two cases of diabetes!
So it was no surprise this month whenover fifty locals patiently waited in line (which extended outside the door and along the balcony) to receive a basic health check at our KL Mums and Bubs Clinic. With support from the fws Social Welfare Team, all the babies were weighed, temperatures were checked, blood pressures were recorded and small aliments were attended to- all in the space of 4 hours!
The amazing response the Clinic has received from the community has emphasised the need for a community dispensary nearby.
Watch this space, the Health Team are here!
