Visitor Policy

A. COMING TO NCCS

  1. I am fully vaccinated and have self-isolated at home for 7 days after COVID-19 infection, but I am still testing ART positive. Can I come for my scheduled appointments at NCCS?

    Yes, there is no need to reschedule your appointments if you have completed 7 days of self-isolation at home.

  2. What should I do when I arrive at NCCS for my appointment?

    All patients coming to NCCS for the following procedures must do a self-administered COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test (ART) on the day of their appointment; 

    1. Surgery at Operating Theatre at Level 3

    2. Endoscopy at Endoscopy Suite at Level 2

    3. Hookwire procedures at Mammography Suite at Level 1

    Patients are required to take a photo of their negative ART results with their NRIC and test date and show it to staff before the procedure.

    Steps for performing the self-administered ART:

    1) Perform the self-administered ART at home, on the day of scheduled appointment at NCCS. For a step-by-step guide on self-administered ART, please click here.

    2) Take a photo using your mobile phone of the negative ART result next to your NRIC, and indicate the test date (see photo below)


    3) Show the photo of the negative ART result to staff before the procedure.

  3. Where can my caregiver and I buy food and drinks near NCCS?        

    The nearest food and beverage outlets are at the National Heart Centre Singapore or SGH. Please note that no eating or drinking is allowed within NCCS due to infection control measures to keep our patients protected.

B. ACCOMPANYING PERSONS/CAREGIVERS

  1. My mother has an appointment for chemotherapy, can I accompany her to the Ambulatory Treatment Unit for her chemo session?

    The Ambulatory Treatment Unit is a high-risk area as patients receiving chemotherapy treatment are immunocompromised and more vulnerable to infections. To protect this group of patients, one accompanying person is allowed in the Ambulatory Treatment Unit waiting area at NCCS.

  2. Can my 2 children accompany me to NCCS for my appointment?

    Due to COVID-19, the number of accompanying persons allowed has been limited to reduce the possibility of disease transmission. For their safety, children under 12 years old are strictly not allowed into NCCS.
