Healthcare Services and Facilities

 

31 Jul 2018

We design our services to promote health, prevent and reduce illness, and ensure Singaporeans have access to good and affordable healthcare for all their healthcare needs from primary healthcare at the local GP to long-term community or residential care.

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.  Read more

Hospital Services

We have 8 public hospitals comprising 6 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. Read more

Dental Services

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. Read more

Intermediate and Long Term Care (ILTC)

These continuing care facilities are for patients who no longer require the level of care dispensed by a hospital, but nevertheless require continued care. ILTC comprises:

  • Residential ILTC services care, for patients who stay in these facilities both in the day and at night. 

  • Community-based ILTC services, both centre-based and home-based, provided to patients during the day.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

We base our healthcare services on Western medical science. However, our ethnic groups occasionally consult traditional medicine practitioners for general ailments. Interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and other traditional or alternative medical treatments is increasing both here and around the world. We are, therefore, reviewing standards of training and practice of TCM in Singapore. Our aim is to ensure a higher quality of TCM practice, for the benefit of patients who consult TCM practitioners

Support Services

Support services to hospitals and primary healthcare programmes include forensic pathology, pharmaceutical services and blood transfusion service.
