Having access to primary cover leads to improved health by ensuring that minor ailments are treated at the point of origin and that they do not progress to bigger, less manageable conditions.
“Primary healthcare plays a very significant role in preventive care, allowing early detection of any physical or mental problems, which gives the patient enough time to seek further treatment,” says Tauhir Manuel, CEO at GetSavvi Health.
GetSavvi Health offers unlimited GP visits, emergency care, optometry, dentistry and medication and is focussed on providing hard-working South Africans with the primary healthcare they need to live a happy and healthy life.
“Many South Africans are unable to seek treatment for health problems when they arise but rather wait until it reaches a point where they have no choice but to go to a state hospital or day clinic,” Manuel says.
He adds that this unfortunately puts increasing pressure on the public health system and could lead to delayed or compromised services.
“Overcrowding remains one of the biggest problems facing the South African healthcare system today,” says Manuel.
Manuel adds that by supplying South Africans with excellent primary care services, GetSavvi Health believes that fewer people will need to rely on clinics and day hospitals around the country, thereby reducing pressure on current healthcare facilities and improving the quality of life of many South Africans.
