What do GPs need to do in order to participate in Healthier SG?
Participate in Core GP Schemes
Family doctors must participate in CDMP, CHAS, Screen for Life, and national vaccination programmes. Clinics must also be Public Health Preparedness Clinics if and when activated.
Primary Care Network (PCN)
Family doctors who are not in a PCN need to join one. This will enable them to benefit from access to team-based care, including nurse counsellors and patient care coordinators, and peer support from like-minded colleagues to share best practices with, which is particularly useful during public health emergencies, such as COVID-19.
Partner their Regional Healthcare Cluster
This means establishing contact and working closely with the healthcare cluster for the region: continuing to refer patients to the institution of the patient's choice; and working with the partner healthcare cluster to address local population needs and enhance the clinic's capabilities.
