Tongaat Community Health Centre

Tongaat Community Health Centre began as a small Primary Health Clinic with a limited package of service and a mobile health clinic providing an outreach service. The Family Planning clinic was subsequently rendered from M.G. Reddy building on Main Street, Tongaat, including a Youth Health Clinic. The health clinic was operated from what is now used as the administration block. The increase in patient load and expansion of services led to the development of more service delivery infrastructure over the years. Some services like Mental and Community Health Services are offered at David Whitehead

The catchment area consists of approximately 112,677; made up from previously disadvantaged communities, predominantly poor with high unemployment. The area includes Wards 61, 62 and other neighboring wards including border communities in Ilembe up to Shakaskrall, Ballito and Ndwedwe. The current site of the community health centre is accessible in terms of transport routes services. It is favorable to a one stop e.g. health care, public utility services and shopping to the greater area including border communities of Ilembe. It is located next to the Tongaat Bus/Taxi Rank
