Round the clock with Melomed24





Melomed24 is the first private ambulance service to be permanently based on the Cape Flats. In the event of a patient requiring urgent medical care, Melomed hospitals were previously being bypassed and patients were transported to a distant hospital.

It goes without saying that this practice not only compromised the patient's health but also inconvenienced the family. The need for immediate access to an ambulance network on the Cape Flats gave rise to Melomed24.

Melomed's 24hour ambulance services were launched in November 2003. The ambulance service provides immediate definitive medical care and reliable emergency medical-transport service to the previously disadvantaged community living in the Cape Flats and surrounding areas. It is the only private ambulance service that operates on a full time basis on the greater Cape Flats and surrounding areas, offering convenience and accessibility.

The ambulance unit boasts modern ambulances equipped with the latest state-of-the-art medical-emergency equipment. The unit also includes a rapid response vehicle , a fully equipped rescue vehicle and together has the ability to deal with any medical emergency 24 hours a day.

Once again Melomed24 brings new hope to the community. Trained paramedics manage and operate the ambulance service. Paramedics are trained to offer basic life support, intermediate life support, and advanced life support and more recently advanced medical rescue.

The fleet currently consists of eight ambulances, one emergency response vehicle and one fully equipped rescue vehicle encompassing the latest extrication equipment for motor vehicle accidents cable of also assisting in mountain rescue and fire rescue.
