The first 60 minutes following a medical
emergency is often referred to as the ‘golden hour’. This is the window of
opportunity where appropriate pre-hospital emergency medical care can
positively impact a patient’s outcome.

App uses smartphone technology to get you the medical assistance you need in an
emergency. This potentially life-saving service is designed to reduce emergency
response time, ensuring that Netcare 911 emergency medical personnel reach you in
the shortest possible time when you need them the most.
