What is Healthier SG?

Healthier SG is a major transformation of our healthcare system to promote good health, prevent chronic diseases and their deterioration, anchored by primary care and the community. 

It aims to focus on better health and quality of life for everyone, and encompasses 5 key features:

  1. Mobilise our network of family doctors
  2. Develop health plans
  3. Activate community partners
  4. A national Healthier SG enrolment program
  5. Set up the necessary key enablers to make Healthier SG work 


Healthier SG aspires to develop the next phase of primary care in Singapore, where:

  • Care for chronic diseases is embedded within the community and is proactively managed by family doctors and their care teams.
  • Health plans are well-coordinated through common care protocols, interoperable IT systems, and shared data;
  • Care is supported by local and community stakeholders, with coordination from the healthcare clusters, and most importantly;
  • Singaporeans do their part in preventive care and to stay healthy, through lifestyle adjustments.
Your role as family doctors is therefore critical to the success of this initiative.

What do GPs need to do in order to participate in Healthier SG?

Participate in Core GP Schemes

Family doctors must participate in CDMPCHASScreen for Life, and national vaccination programmes.  Clinics must also be Public Health Preparedness Clinics​ if and when activated.​

Join a 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.​​

Adopt a Healthier SG-compatible Clinic Management System (CMS) and contribute to NEHR

Clinics will need to sign the National Electronic Health Record (NEHR) Accession Agreement (AA) and apply for NEHR view-access for practicing doctors.

Clinics will also need to implement and maintain a Healthier SG-compatible CMS at its premises. Please refer here for the list of Healthier SG-compatible CMSes​. To find out more about adopting a Healthier SG-compatible CMS, please refer to this guide by MOH.

Achieve accreditation to become a Family Physician

Have at least one GP who is registered with the Singapore Medical Council (SMC) as a Family Physician (FP) and this FP should not be covering multiple Healthier SG clinics. This requirement takes effect from 1 July 2030
