Patients with chronic medical diseases like diabetes, hypertension, kidney diseases often have multiple appointments to see various healthcare professionals. 

In order to serve our patients better, we have relocated our clinics to form an integrated, multi-disciplinary centre - Diabetes and Metabolism Centre (DMC). DMC provides a one-stop service for patients with diabetes and metabolic conditions. The centre combines clinical care in Endocrinology, Diabetes, Renal Medicine, Internal Medicine, Vascular Surgery, Peritoneal Dialysis, Podiatry and Vitreo-Retinal services organised around the needs of the patient.

Besides clinical consultations, the centre will also provide diabetes nurse education, dietetics counselling as well as drug management services. There is also a pharmacy and laboratory for blood taking located nearby, at Bowyer Block C, Level 1.


Opening Hours
 
Mondays to Fridays: 8.00am to 6.00pm 

Saturdays: 8.00am to 12.30pm
