Registration of new patients can be either done prior to your visit by Pre-Registering or during your first visit to our clinics. One person can Register for all the family.
We ask that new patients arrive 10 minutes before their appointment so that any required forms can be completed and baseline measurements of height, weight, and blood pressure can be taken before you are seen by the doctor.
Health Care in Singapore
When moving to a new country, it is normal to have a mixture of feelings. You may feel excited at the thought of all the new experiences you will have, but you may also have concerns about some of the practical issues such as healthcare. This may be a particular concern for those who are living in Asia for the first time, for people who have chronic health problems and for families with young children.
The good news is that medical practice in Singapore is of a very high standard. It is generally modelled on the British system, and doctors have standard compulsory university degrees with hospital training.
There is no national healthcare system in Singapore as exists in some other countries. To ensure you are fully protected we advise all patients to secure appropriate Health Insurance. Many companies give Health Insurance as part of their ‘package’ however increasing numbers of patients decide to ‘top-up’. Please visit a Health Insurance broker to discuss.
A huge part of the fun of living in Singapore is discovering neighboring countries and going on adventures. However, it is important to get appropriate advice before travelling as some diseases that are not present in Singapore are frequently encountered in the rest of South East Asia.
Remember that your home country vaccination schedule will not have included travel, and certainly not travel within Asia. With this in mind we recommend all new families come in for a Vaccination review to ensure the whole family is protected.
We are open Monday to Saturday (closing at 1.30pm), however, emergencies can happen at any time. There are a number of hospitals around Singapore which can accommodate patients after hours. We have all the hospital and emergency numbers detailed on our IMC Emergency Numbers fridge magnet. Please ask our Receptionists who will be happy to give you one.
As part of our duty of care we urge you to take a moment to put into your mobile phone the ambulance number: 995.
Whether you plan to live, work or travel in Singapore, it is essential to ensure that your health is covered by appropriate medical insurance. There is no ‘national’ health care in Singapore as there is in some other countries.
IMC has agreements with most of the global Health Insurance companies and arranges direct billing with them accordingly. This means you do not have to worry about paying each time you visit the doctor.
