Services offered:

General medical consultation and treatment
A general consultation allows a team of doctors, nurses and midwives to track the progress of its condition, manage disease or disability, prevent future or potential health issues, improve life and movement, and extend life as much as possible.

Minor surgery
Minor surgery is a relatively painless and fairly quick procedure. It generally takes 20 to 30 minutes. Most procedures are carried out using local anaesthetic. This is an injection given around the site of the operation. Performing minor surgeries that are less invasive can shorten a patient's recovery time and effectively reduce their risk of infection.

HIV testing and counselling (HTC)
The HIV testing and counselling is a package service intended to know the HIV status. HIV-negative individuals should be provided with information and material that help to remain HIV negative. HIV-positive individuals should be informed of their options and advised and referred for further care, treatment and support services as needed.

Family planning
Family planning is the consideration of the number of children a person wishes to have, including the choice to have no children, and the age at which they wish to have them. Things that may play a role on family planning decisions include marital situation, career or work considerations, financial situations.

Antenatal care (ANC)
Antenatal care is the care you get from health professionals during your pregnancy. It's sometimes called pregnancy care. You should start your antenatal care as soon as possible once you know you're pregnant. It includes risk identification and screening, prevention and management of pregnancy-related or concurrent diseases, and health education and promotion. You'll be offered appointments with our midwife.

Ultrasound scan
An ultrasound scan, sometimes called a sonogram, is a procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of part of the inside of the body. Ultrasound scan is most often used to examine the heart or an unborn baby in the womb. It can also be used to examine the liver, kidneys and other organs in the tummy and pelvis, as well as other organs or tissues that can be assessed through the skin, such as muscles and joints.


Laboratory services:

Helicobacter pylori test (H. pylori)
The Helicobacter pylori bacteria infects the digestive system. Many people with H. pylori will never have symptoms of infection. But for others, the bacteria can cause a variety of digestive disorders as gastritis (inflammation of the stomach), peptic ulcers (sores in the stomach, small intestine, or esophagus), and certain types of stomach cancer.

Malaria rapid diagnostic test (MRDT)
Malaria is a serious disease caused by a parasite. You get it when an infected mosquito bites you. Malaria is a major cause of death worldwide. Malaria symptoms include chills, flu-like symptoms, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and jaundice. A blood test can diagnose it. It can be life-threatening.

Widal test
The Widal test is an indirect agglutination test for enteric fever or undulant fever whereby bacteria causing typhoid fever is mixed with a serum containing specific antibodies obtained from an infected individual. In cases of Salmonella infection, it is a demonstration of the presence of O-soma false-positive result. Test results need to be interpreted carefully to account for any history of enteric fever, typhoid vaccination, and the general level of antibodies in the populations in endemic areas of the world.

Hematocrit test (HCT)
A hematocrit test measures the proportion of red blood cells in your blood. Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout your body. Having too few or too many red blood cells can be a sign of certain diseases.

Venereal Disease Research Laboratory test (VDRL)
The Venereal Disease Research Laboratory test is a blood test for syphilis and related non-venereal treponematoses. The VDRL test is used to screen for syphilis and it has high sensitivity.

Rapid plasma reagin (RPR)
A rapid plasma reagin (RPR) test is a blood test used to screen you for syphilis. It measures substances (proteins) called antibodies that are present in the blood of people who may have the disease.

Fasting blood sugar (FBS)
The Fasting blood sugar (FBS) measures blood glucose after you have not eaten for at least 8 hours. It is often the first test done to check for prediabetes and used to diagnose diabetes mellitus.

Microbiological and Pyrogen Test (MPT)
At sufficient levels of concentration and biological activity, exogenous pyrogens that enter a humanís bloodstream can cause fever, diarrhea, vomiting, and fatal endotoxic shock.


Note:

Pyrogens are made up of a chemically heterogeneous group of compounds (which originate from bacteria, viruses, fungi or the host itself), that induce a rise in temperature (febrile response) in a human or animal. Pyrogens can be stratified broadly into two categories: exogenous and endogenous pyrogens. Testing the degree of pyrogenic contamination of sterile parenteral drugs and medical devices is a ubiquitously mandated quality control measure by standards defined by international regulatory bodies.
