There are many sorts of medical clinics in Singapore and it is difficult to point out which one is best for you. The questions you have to ask are; what are your needs?, what are you suffering from?. I know most of you will not be able to understand what you are suffering from; we are familiar with the carousal of confusion that some symptoms can bring us on. The good news is that Singapore is a world class medical country, with an integrated medical framework that has everything for every need and dedicated health care professionals that will be able to help you in the journey to a healthier life.
One of the great features about medical clinics in Singapore is the fact that there a lot of private medical clinics that operate on a 24 hour basis. One such example is Novena Clinic 24 Hours. As its name says, its a 24-hour surgery centre catering to medical and surgical enquiries 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It has a private Accident & Emergency (A&E) facility with recovery suites for post surgical nursing care. Various specialist of different specialty are on call 24 hours. Others include walk in clinics and private practices that are also located within public and private hospitals all over Singapore. They are quite easy to find and their services after normal operating hours are not compromised.
I think that we can divide this category into public healthcare medical clinics and private organisations and practices that are abound in many of the local neighborhoods. Public healthcare medical clinics are managed by the government and regulating bodies like SingHealth, who ensure the quality of the healthcare through many programmes and initiatives that maintains its relevance and adds different disciplines on a yearly basis. Private healthcare is no different, although their price ranges may be slightly different. There is almost no difference in the treatment but private clinics usually are centered either within the city officer or scattered across many of the suburbs and small towns in and around Singapore. They come in the form of family practices or private specialist clinics that can specialize in anything from chiropractic, neurosurgery, cardio-vascular, pediatric and gynecology. There are many more departments but you get the idea. Many people go to private clinics for less queues and more personal treatment – something the public healthcare find it hard to give because of the amount of people they treat.
A simple search online will reveal a whole host of clinics from all over Singapore, specializing in different departments and areas of health. With more than 500 private and public healthcare general and specialists practitioners, there is a niche for everyone, with big names like Johns Hopkins thrown into the mix. In truth the standard of medical clinics in Singapore is very high so you will be assured of the best, everywhere you go.
