Collecting Your Medications

To reduce contact time and the risk of transmission during this period, we will be closing the Pharmacy at Block 3 with effect from 17 April 2020 until further notice. For your safety, we encourage all patients to use
Medication Delivery Service.



At our outpatient pharmacies, our staff will counsel you on the proper use of your medications, including any possible side effects and precautions to observe.  From 30 November 2020, you will be able to retrieve your prescription on HealthBuddy app. You will no longer receive paper prescriptions. A medication list will be provided to you for your reference.
