Geylang Polyclinic is managed by SingHealth Group, one of the largest health care providers in Singapore. The polyclinic network provides primary healthcare services to the community and plays an integral role in promoting good health. With nine clinics nationwide, SingHealth Polyclinics offers a wide range of services such as diagnostic tests, preventative care, and treatments for common illnesses. In the past, Singapore’s population was predominantly young. A good public healthcare system built upon hospital-centric tertiary care was sufficient to meet most of our healthcare needs. However, as the population ages, Singapore is seeing an increase in the number of elderly citizens who require more specialized care. To meet this need, Singapore has developed a network of community-based clinics and hospitals that provide a variety of services such as rehabilitation and long-term care. SingHealth Polyclinics (SHP) is a network of polyclinics managed by SingHealth. SHP aims to provide holistic primary care services to the community and has been transforming since it was established in 1985. In addition to its polyclinic services, SHP also offers integrated primary care programs, which aim to provide coordinated and comprehensive care for patients. In 2017, SHP served over 1.2 million patients through its polyclinics and integrated programs. In 2000, seven polyclinics (Bedok, Bukit Merah, Geylang, Marine Parade, Outram, Geylang Polyclinic, Queenstown, Tampines) were reorganised under the Ministry of Health (MOH) to provide primary care services in Singapore. This new structure was intended to improve the coordination and delivery of health services across the island nation by consolidating the various polyclinics into larger networks.

In recent years, the popularity of communal living and health and fitness trends have seen an increase in the number of people living in close proximity to one another. This has led to the proliferation of community wellness clinics (CWCs), which offer residents access to a variety of health and fitness services at reduced rates. The IMH Community Wellness Clinic @ Geylang Polyclinic is one such clinic, located at the Geylang Polyclinic car park.
How do we get there
Primary care is essential to the health and wellbeing of patients and their families. The delivery of primary medical treatment can be an effective and integrated system if it is empowered and supported by the patients, their families, and the communities. Primary care should be accessible to all, regardless of socio-economic status or location. It should include a mix of preventive services, chronic disease management, acute care services, and specialties necessary for comprehensive care. The community must be able to access the necessary health services without having to visit a hospital. Chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes, can be managed at home through healthy eating and exercise, but some patients may still need to see a doctor from time-to-time. There are ways that the community can help reduce visits to the doctor for chronic illnesses by expanding access to appropriate health care. Telemedicine has been shown to be an effective and convenient way to provide healthcare services to patients. SHP implemented telemedicine technology in order to improve patient care and save money. By using telemedicine, SHP was able to reduce the number of clinic visits by 50%. The technology allowed for more efficient communication between physicians and patients, which in turn improved patient care.
