Emergencies

In the event of a medical emergency, seek help at one of the city's private hospitals. Among the most reputable are Milpark Hospital and Sandton Medi-Clinic. You'll find pharmacies all over the city, but when in doubt, there are pharmacies in every Clicks and Dis-Chem store located in shopping complexes citywide.
