New law to license, regulate emerging healthcare services

7/1/2020

The Healthcare Services Bill was approved by Parliament on 6 Jan, and will give the authorities powers to license new models of care. Senior Minister of State for Health Edwin Tong told the House the need for change is long due, given the rapidly evolving healthcare landscape and the rise in age-related illnesses and chronic diseases as the population ages.

The new law will be implemented in three phases from early 2021 to the end of 2022, to give service providers time to meet regulatory requirements. Several initiatives are in place to ensure new licensees are ready, such as the voluntary accreditation scheme for private ambulance operators. [Source: The Straits Times]
