Our local healthcare landscape, and the various modalities of providing healthcare treatments have changed over the years, accelerated by technology advancements and digitalisation.
Telemedicine offers a seamless platform option for individuals who seek a fuss free modality of obtaining medical consult, by helping to bridge the constraints of distance, time, and cost.

Therefore, it is important to learn how to use telemedicine safely and responsibly.
Do keep a look out on our social media platforms for more information, as we start to roll out telemedicine services for the public.
