What to expect during your visit

Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the appointment time at the specified clinic for registration.

What is the registration process?

For first visit

Register yourself at our Self Registration Kiosk in the clinic. Our staff will attend to you shortly. Please note that the queue number given is not sequential.

To ensure that the correct care and service is rendered to you, our staff will ask for your name and NRIC or Address or Date of Birth at every point of your care contact.

For follow-up visit (s):   

You may register via SingHealth Health Buddy app on your handphone or at the Self Registration Kiosk.

Mobile Registration

You will receive a SMS on the day of your appointment inviting you to register through Health Buddy app.

A queue number will be generated upon successful registration. You will be able to monitor the queue from the Health Buddy app and arrive at the clinic before your appointment time.

When you arrive at the clinic physically, proceed to check-in at the respective Clinic Self-Registration Kiosk.

Kiosk Registration

Follow the instructions as indicated on the kiosk. After registering, you will be issued a queue number with a journey. Just proceed to the next service station upon successful registration.

In the event of an unsuccessful self-registration, you will be issued with a queue number from the kiosk. Please proceed to the waiting area and our staff will attend to you shortly.

Do note that the queue numbers displayed on the queue board are not in running sequence.

You can go for your meals or attend to other matters while waiting to see your doctor. If you have registered for SMS Queue Reminder Service, a SMS will be sent to your handphone to remind you of your appointment.

*If you need to change or cancel your appointment, please do so at least three working days before the scheduled appointment. This will help another patient waiting for medical attention to get an earlier appointment.

Where do I go for blood investigations?

Kindly proceed to Level 10, Patient Care Services.  You are required to register and make payment before blood tests are done.

If you need to do blood investigations before your consultation (on arrival), you may choose to do it:

2. On appointment day – Depending on the type of blood test you require, please arrive at Patient Care Services (Level 10) 1 - 1.5 hours before your appointment time. Upon completion of blood taking, you will be issued a blood test slip. Proceed to the respective clinic or treatment unit and present the slip to the counter staff.
