HEALTHCARE AT YOUR DOOR – NEIGHBOURHOOD HEALTH SERVICE
The Neighbourhood Health Service (NHS) is a local community health service project which aims to identify residents-in-need, especially the elderly and residents of lower socio-economic status living in rental blocks, and act as a bridge to reconnect them back to the healthcare system through an active follow-up programme.
Since its inaugural screening in January 2008, NHS has grown substantially in serving the healthcare needs of the rental block population and has since served 9 districts, including residents in Kampong Glam and Eunos Crescent in 2017.
In the long-term, NHS hopes to be a replicable health service model that can be adopted by healthcare institutions nationwide.
