The Health Assessment Centre is a one-stop centre that offers health screening programmes that are tailored to the health needs of each individual. The centre also provides general medical care and follow-up consultations for patients who have identified health problems.

At the Health Assessment Centre, health checks are modelled on evidence-based medicine. Before embarking on a series of tests, the doctors will assess the patient’s specific health needs and concerns, taking into account his or her age, gender, personal and family medical history and initial physical findings. Thereafter, the doctors will help the patient make an informed choice by advising him or her on his or her health risk, as well as the risk and benefits of the various recommended suite of tests.

For more information about health assessment, please call 6736 6180, fax 6235 1750 or email healthsc@sgh.com.sg

What is Health Assessment?

Health assessment is important to you.

Health assessment is important to everyone. It includes physical examinations or other procedures to detect disease early in people who look or feel well. This is different from diagnostic tests which are done when someone is already showing signs and/or symptoms of a disease.

Why should I go for health assessment?

Health assessment helps you find out if you have a particular disease or condition even if you feel perfectly well, without any symptoms and/or signs of disease. Early detection, followed by treatment and good control of the condition can result in better outcomes, and lowers the risk of serious complications.

What are the different type of Health Assessment?

There are 2 categories of assessment tests. 

  1. Beneficial for everyone: These tests are listed in Table A. 
  2. Beneficial for some but not others -
    Decision to be made on an ‘individual’ level, based on your individual risk factors e.g. self or family history of hereditary or chronic diseases, exposure to factors that can lead to disease e.g. smoking. 

It is best to speak to our resident physicians who will advise you on the relevant tests based on your individual health profile.

What should I do after health assessment?

If the outcome of the assessment is good, you should continue with regular assessment at the recommended frequency because the result only indicate your health conditions at that point of time. If you develop signs or symptoms after the assessment, please see your doctor – do not wait for your next health assessment.

If your results are abnormal, you will be referred to the relevant specialists or returned to your regular doctor for review and management of your medical condition(s).

Why do I need to go for regular assessment at the recommended frequency?

A one-off assessment will only pick up health conditions that are present during that time. Regular assessment allow us to detect conditions that develop subsequently. Hence, it is important for you to go for regular assessment tests at the recommended frequency.
