SingHealth Patients To Enjoy Free Medicine Delivery Until June 30
Patients visiting hospitals, polyclinics and some specialist centres under SingHealth can how have their prescription medicine delivered.
The service is available for patients of:
- Singapore General Hospital (SGH)
- Changi General Hospital (CGH)
- Sengkang General Hospital
- KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital
- Singapore National Eye Centre
- National Cancer Centre Singapore
- National Heart Centre Singapore
The service will be free until June 30 this year. After that, patients will have to pay S$8 per delivery.
Singapore General Hospital (SGH) director of pharmacy Lim Mun Moon said that the service will benefit patients who need long-term medications.
“After seeing the doctor, instead of collecting their medication at our outpatient pharmacy, these patients can skip the queue by signing up for the medication delivery service and opting for their medication to be delivered,” he said.
To sign up for the service, patients have to register at their institution’s pharmacy.
Payments can be made online or at kiosks in the pharmacies.
The medication will be delivered within 3 working days. Patients can choose to have them delivered to their homes or to collection points across the island.
To make requests for subsequent medication refills, patients can call the pharmacy or use the SingHealth Health Buddy app.
