We design our services to promote health, prevent and reduce illness, and ensure Singaporeans have access to good and affordable healthcare.
Primary Healthcare Services
Primary healthcare services are provided by professionals—usually general practitioners —in polyclinics and private medical clinics within the community. These healthcare professionals are often the first point of contact with patients. More
We have 7 public hospitals comprising 5 general hospitals, a women's and children's hospital, and a psychiatry hospital. General hospitals provide multi-disciplinary inpatient and specialist outpatient services, and 24-hour emergency departments. Six national specialty centres provide cancer, cardiac, eye, skin, neuroscience and dental care. More
Public dental services are available through the National Dental Centre and in some polyclinics and hospitals. The Health Promotion Board primarily focuses on preventive dentistry, targeted mainly at school pupils. More

These continuing care facilities are for patients who no longer require the level of care dispensed by a hospital, but nevertheless requires continued care.
Residential ILTC services care is for patients who stay in these facilities both in the day and at night. More
Community-based ILTC Services comprise centre-based and home-based healthcare services that are provided to patients during the day. More
