Emergency:

Summit Clinic. In such cases the patient is simply brought to the emergency unit
who will treat and stabilise the patient and then arrange for the patient to be
brought up to Summit Clinic.

Weekend Admissions:
Patients are to present to the Rondebosch Medical Centre General Reception who

Patients who believe that they need assistance and admit themselves directly to the
clinic need to go via ER ( Emergency Room) and will then be referred to Summit

care. This Psychiatrist will then allocate a Clinical Psychologist for individual
psycho-therapy if this is deemed to be necessary.
