Social Services

Social Services at Witkoppen Health and Welfare Centre work in conjunction with the medical services available at the Clinic, underlying the philosophy that treating a person holistically - physically and mentally - is the best approach. Our social services team is headed by Mpolokeng Kambule, a very experienced social worker.
