Updates on new Healthcare Services Act and NEHR
The Ministry of Health (MOH) recently announced their intention to replace the current Private Hospitals and Medical Clinics Act (PHMCA) with the new Healthcare Services Bill (HCS Bill), targeted for enactment in 2019. The HCS Bill will regulate mainstream healthcare services providers (similar to the PHMCA) and will also expand to cover non-premises based providers such as the ambulance and telemedicine service providers. We encourage our members to be familiar with the changes and to provide any feedback or concerns on these changes via the MOH channels available.


Welcome to the Voice of the Profession

SMA believes that members have an integral part to play in shaping Singapore’s healthcare landscape for the better, both for doctors and for patients.


"I think few will disagree that the practice of Medicine is based upon a framework of professionalism with its components of knowledge, ethics and compassion. The core business of the profession is therefore achieving the best interests of our patients. By putting the interests of the weak and vulnerable first, the profession also advocates and propagates key social values such as altruism, compassion, fidelity, trustworthiness and, perhaps even filial piety."
