LIMPOPO- Limpopo Health MEC Dr Phophi Ramathuba will officially hand over lens spectacles cutting machine at Rethabile health center. This is in line with our decision of decentralization of healthcare services to primary healthcare and also district hospitals.
The Department embarked on establishing lens cutting machines to assist in dealing with the accumulated spectacles backlog. Each district in the province is equipped and now functional. Capricorn district unfortunately optometrists were still cutting their lenses at Mankweng Hospital hence we have identified Rethabile healthcare center to be a facility that they will utilized.
