Mobile Community Health Centre 

The mobile Community Health Centre, also known as the mobile CHC is a project conceptualised and launched by National Healthcare Group (NHG) in 2014. Equipped with retinal photography equipment on-board, the mobile CHC is capable to screen patients with chronic diseases (i.e. diabetes) in communities nearer to their homes at affordable rates. It travels around Singapore and is located at the community centres, nursing homes on a fixed quarterly schedule.
