Zimbabwe Elections: Newlands Clinic operates normally

After the violent protests following this week’s elections in Zimbabwe, the situation in the capital, Harare, is calmer at present. Police are still patrolling the streets. Newlands Clinic is open for patients and is operating normally.

On Wednesday and Thursday 1 and 2 August 2018, we closed our clinic earlier so our staff members and patients could return home safely. New appointments were arranged for patients that were unable to come due to roadblocks.

Newlands Clinic is located in a quiet residential area outside the centre of Harare. We are monitoring the situation as it develops.

The security and safety of our staff and patients is naturally our top priority. We will keep you up to date if there are any changes in the situation.
