WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY?

,,

We have two clinical Nurse practitioners; a dental hygienist and administrator, and numerous volunteer medical staff who offer their expertise to our communities, and the clinic structure provided by Topshell is a pleasure for all of us to work in.

,,

The communities in which we work are very fluid and land is difficult to come by, which means sometimes the spaces we create either need to be added to and enlarged or relocated entirely, so flexibility is non-negotiable.

,,

From the first visit to the final installation, my experience with Topshell was amazing, not least of all, because my eyes were opened to the potential of these structures, for family and community use.

,,

As a pharmaceutical supplier, we at Cipla aim to provide accessible, affordable, professional medical care for people in township areas that is also convenient and respectful of their dignity, and getting this right is not always easy.

,,

The Topshell experience was unforgettable and of the highest quality. They were willing to walk the proverbial EKSTRA MYL in an exceptionally warmhearted and friendly way!
