Our Clinical Services


Working in clinical care teams consisting of doctors, nurses, clinical psychologists, medical social workers and other allied health professionals, the Division provides an additional layer of specialized support at any stage of the illness journey. We provide both an inpatient consult service in Singapore General Hospital and a specialist outpatient clinic service in NCCS. In addition, we work closely with our community partners to ensure the smooth transition of care from hospital to the community, for our patients and their caregivers.

The different aspects of care provided include:

• Management of pain and other symptoms (e.g. shortness of breath, loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, etc.) related to serious illness and its treatment
• Patient and family/caregiver education
• Emotional, psychological, and spiritual support
• Practical and social support
• Care and discharge planning
• End-of-life and bereavement care
