RESOURCES


The key resources below aim to help all new and existing healthcare service providers obtain their licence(s) under the Healthcare Services Act (HCSA).

  • If you hold a HCSA licence, you will need to abide by the general HCSA requirements and respective service regulations.
  • If you hold a Private Hospitals and Medical Clinics Act (PHMCA) licence, you will need to continue abiding by these prevailing regulations.
  • If you hold both PHMCA and HCSA licences, you will need to abide by the requirements from each that pertain to your services.

Please note that the implementation of the General Regulations, Advertisement Regulations and Phase 1 Service Regulations has been deferred from September 2021 to 3 January 2022. The implementation timeline for Phases 2 and 3 has also been deferred, with some adjustments made to the split of regulations between these two phases.
