The National Healthcare Group Polyclinics (NHGP) and the Primary Care Academy (PCA) are both members of the National Healthcare Group (NHG), the Regional Health System for Central Singapore.
NHGP forms the primary healthcare arm of NHG. Its six polyclinics serve a significant proportion of the population in the central and northern parts of Singapore. NHGP provides a comprehensive range of health services for the family, functioning as a one-stop health centre providing treatment for acute medical conditions, management of chronic diseases, women & child health services and dental care. The focus of NHGP’s care is on health promotion and disease prevention, early and accurate diagnosis, disease management through physician led team-based care as well as enhancing the capability of Family Medicine through research and teaching.
Through PCA, NHGP provides training to caregivers and other primary care counterparts in the community sector. More information is available at National Healthcare Group Polyclinics (nhgp.com.sg).
On 22 January 2021, NHGP and SUSS signed a Master Collaboration Agreement to train undergraduates in health and wellness coaching. This partnership aims to nurture a pipeline of local graduates with the ability to conduct person-centered health coaching, and is a first such collaboration between a primary care organization and an academic institution in Singapore.
