NCCS is engaged in cutting-edge clinical and translational research which has received several international acclaims. The national centre is accredited by the Joint Commission International in 2010 for quality patient care and safety.

Subsidised or Private Charges?
According to guidelines by the Ministry of Health, there are two patient classifications:

You are a subsidised patient if your first visit is via:

  • Referral letter from a restructured hospital under subsidised status, polyclinic, SAF or General Practitioner (Patient has to be a CHAS cardholder) participating in CHAS without specifying a specialist by name.

  • Discharge from inpatient subsidised class ward without specifying a specialist by name.

Subsidy is only applicable for Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents, who are not existing private patients for the same medical condition.

If you are a subsidised patient, you will be attended to by a team of doctors, supervised by a consultant. Together they will provide the level of care most appropriate to your medical needs. The doctor attending to you may change at each visit. Should you request for a preferred doctor, you may do so with the understanding that charges would be as per the private patient classification.

You are a private patient if your first visit is via:

  • Self-referral
  • Referral letter from a General Practitioner (GP).
  • Referral from a Private Hospital.
  • Referral letter from a restructured hospital under private status and / or specifying a consultant by name.
  • Referral letter from a Polyclinic and specifying a consultant by name.
  • Discharge from inpatient paying class ward.

All foreign residents and non-residents belong to the private patient classification
