Visitors Policy

To Wards

From 7 April to 4 May 2020, no ward visitors will be allowed as part of the enhanced national measures.

Exceptions will be made for the following where only ONE designated caregiver* is allowed to visit at any one time (*may nominate up to two designated caregivers):

Critically ill inpatients
Special needs inpatients such as high fall risk patients, labour ward and emergency operations 
Palliative inpatients with very poor prognosis 
Inpatients lacking mental capacity 
Family conferences 
Patients who are discharged home
Caregiver training for non-ambulatory/elderly inpatients ready for discharge

Ward visitors must bring their own mask and ensure that the mask is worn at all times during the visit. 

To Outpatient Clinics & Emergency Department

Patients going to our outpatient clinics and emergency department are still allowed ONE accompanying person each.

Complete Declaration Form to enter SGH premises

Anyone entering the hospital premises must complete a Declaration Form available at the entrance of each SGH block or online. Unwell visitors and accompanying persons will not be allowed in. 

We know that next-of-kins will feel anxious about not being able to visit their loved ones in the wards. However, such a measure will reduce our patients’ risk of infection and help keep them safe.

Carpark H Closure

As the number of COVID-19 cases increases nationally, SGH has extended our testing capacity to receive patients conveyed by designated ambulances.

The extended capacity is located at a multi-storey carpark on campus, and does not accept walk-in patients. Public who are unwell are advised to visit their nearest GP clinics, Polyclinics or Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPCs). The doctors will assess and refer you to any hospital if you are suspected to have COVID-19.

The open air car park at MacAlister Road are closed to the public due to operational needs.

Alternative parking is available at Outram Community Hospital (OCH) / SingHealth Tower and the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS)

Please use Jalan Bukit Merah and enter via Hospital Boulevard or Hospital Drive.

Each patient is only allowed 1 companion.

Thank you for your understanding.
