Pre-Admission Procedure

Pre-admission Procedures

Except for emergency cases, patients are admitted to Singapore General Hospital only on recommendation from their medical specialists from the Specialist Outpatient Clinic. Once a date for admission is confirmed, patients are encouraged to visit the Hospital’s Pre Admission Testing (PAT) Centre to seek information on ward accommodation and register themselves for their desired accommodation class. 

Patients will also be advised on the following:
  • estimated bill size
  • average length of stay
  • various modes of payment accepted
  • documents to bring on day of admission
  • assistance avaliable for those in financial difficulties
The PAT Centre will also schedule appointments for patients to undergo compulsory pre admission investigations such as blood tests, chest x-ray, electrocardiogram, which are conducted one week before admission.
