Audiology & Speech Therapy
At many hospitals, audiology and speech therapy may seem like distant luxuries. We are proud to have these professionals adding value to our patients - helping them access services that may otherwise be difficult or impossible to obtain.
Aimee de Jager
Aimee is a UCT graduate, having joined a long line of community service speech therapists, has stayed on in a brand new Grade 1 post. She is passionate about helping people communicate and swallow - things we easily take for granted when we can enjoy them. She loves travelling, learning new languages and embracing new cultures. Her favourite quote: "Communication leads to community; that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing."
Langa, as he is known, studied at UCT and did his community service at Steve Biko Academic, before a stint in private practice. He joined us this year. He's in health care to be an agent of change, improving other people's lives. He's also interested in the research side, exploring ways to develop services. When he's not doing that, he's looking after a property portfolio, farming, writing or playing sport. He enjoys the outdoors.

Sibulele graduated from Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University and has joined us for community service this year. She is dual qualified as speech and audio. People with special needs are close to her heart and she's looking forward to making a difference in an area with historically less access to resources. Outside of the hospital, she enjoys running.
