General Specialist Services

The General Specialist Services (GSS) is the ​largest part of the Specialised- and Highly Specialised O&G Services within Tygerberg Hospital. Apart from the clinical service at Tygerberg Hospital, it oversees the clinical governance of all O&G services within the Tygerberg, Northern, Eastern and Khayelitsha substructures of Cape Town. The GSS is headed by prof S Gebhardt and the team consists of 8 consultants, 14 medical officers, 16 registrars and 14 interns. The GSS manages 113 ward beds: 42 antenatal, 44 postnatal beds and 27 general gynaecology beds.

The emergency O&G service is in charge of all acute specialist obstetrics and gynaecology referrals from 8 midwife obstetric units, the community health centres, clinics and the 4 large district hospitals within its substructure drainage areas.  The 24-hour O&G Emergency Centre consists of a triage area (4 obstetric and 3 gynaecology beds); 19 dedicated acute (high risk antenatal and delivery) beds, a 24-hour emergency theatre as well as an additional elective theatre on 3 days of the week.

This platform manage the clinical service in which all undergraduate and postgraduate training (apart from the registrar subspecialist training) takes place and all 8 of the Tygerberg-based specialists are also senior lecturers on the joint Stellenbosch University platform and share in the teaching, training and research activities of the academic department.

The general specialist services do outreach to the surrounding district hospitals and midwife obstetric units, with outreach gynaecology clinics, colposcopy services and surgery lists and on-going skills training sessions using the national ESMOE models and modules.
