Jou gesondheid en welstand is ons eerste prioriteit / Our first priority is your health and well being

Health care centre

Elkeen van ons voel so nou en dan bietjie olik, hetsy as gevolg van daardie aaklige griepvirus, ʼn omgekrapte maag of ʼn meer ernstige mediese noodgeval wat jou onverwags op kampus betrap. Jy en jou ouers kan gerus wees, want elkeen van die Noordwes-Universiteit se drie kampusse beskik oor ʼn gesondheidsorgsentrum wat sal toesien dat jy sommer vinnig weer perdfris en gesond genoeg is om jou volle aandag aan “studentwees” te gee.

Alle gesondheidskwessies, van fisies tot sielkundig, akuut tot kronies, word hier deur ’n toegewyde span multidissiplinêre kundiges behandel. Afsprake vir konsultasies kan telefonies gemaak word, maar instap-pasiënte word ook verwelkom.
