Mast is no more

Clive Lake, Mediclinic general manager

Mediclinic Constantiaberg has noticed the community concern regarding cellphone masts being erected in the area and would like to take this opportunity to provide clarity on the mast initially installed at our facility (“Hospital cell mast uproar”, Bulletin, May 19).

We can confirm that a mast was installed without the proper authorisation. When this was clarified, we requested the immediate de-commissioning of the cell mast and can confirm that the device was removed. We can also confirm that the mast will not be re-installed in the future.

We hope that this provides our community with the necessary reassurances regarding this matter.
