General overview of a patient’s journey with SGH@Home:



The care team would constantly check on me to monitor my vital signs. 
Furthermore, they were friendly and always checked if I had any questions.

Mdm Lee, Patient

Patients can rest comfortably at home and receive treatment at the same time.
Mr Wong, Patient
I felt safe even though I'm away from the hospital. This programme is really beneficial in many ways as it gives patients who requires minimal immediate attention and are mobile the flexibility to recuperate at their own comfort environment without hoarding to hospital resources physically.
