Dr Hanneke Heyns is a private paediatrician situated on the foreshore of Cape Town at the Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital. She and dr Krige partners to form the Thriving Kids Paediatricians.

She started her practice in November 2003 in the Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital and moved with the hospital to the new site on the foreshore in 2016. Her practice is on the 16th floor and has the most amazing views of the harbour and Seinheuwel.

She is dedicated to making the doctor experience a pleasant one for everyone, from the patient to the parents and anyone joining. Everybody that the family wants to include are welcome.

Dr Heyns office is child friendly with numerous toys and activities to keep the kids occupied while she consults with the parents first. The examination area is set up to involve the parents as part of the exam, thereby creating a safe and playful experience for the child. The office is child friendly, so while the child is playing the parent can sit back, relax and enjoy all the information that will be given to them on various topics, relating to both the illness that the parent brought the child in for and any other health related topics.

Nicky is the friendly receptionist who makes the bookings, welcomes patients when they arrive and assist them with all questions re the run of the practice and admin issues. Lucinda is the Practice Manager and will assist patients with account queries. She sometimes helps out in front as well. Accounts are managed by Expedient.
