Singapore Hospice Council

Referral E-Form

​The Singapore Hospice Council (SHC) has launched the SHC Common Referral e-Form.

Referral by a doctor is required for any Palliative and Hospice Care services provided.
SHC encourages all doctors to use the e-Form. Please note that the PDF Form is still available on the website and will be phased out by 31 January 2022.

You can access the form here.


E-Library (Resources for Healthcare Professionals)

The Singapore Hospice Council (SHC) is pleased to announce the launch of our new library website. Browse our wide range of resources on palliative care and end-of-life care, ranging from self-help books for Caregivers, guidelines and recommendations for Healthcare Professionals, to interactive readings for Patients and the General Public. These can be found in English and other languages, where available.


A few months ago, SHC had also published a series of e-resources to support caregivers of terminally ill patients, and FAQs and survey findings to educate healthcare professionals on palliative care. They can now be found on SHC's new library website. For your easy reference, please find the posters below and you can use that as a quick access/circular to your team.
