Laboratory 

We offer a comprehensive range of primary care testings in all our laboratories islandwide. Serving thousands of primary care patients referred from both public and private medical practitioners, most of our onsite tests have a turn around time of 1 hour, enabling patients to obtain treatment promptly.

Aligned with Singapore’s vision of “One Patient, One Record” through the National Electronic Health Record, all NHG Diagnostics laboratory information are inter-linked within the NHG cluster, allowing clinicians timely access for better patient care. Clinicians can also transmit their test orders seamlessly and view patients’ results electronically from the Laboratory Information System (LIS) platform.

Our laboratory department’s key strength lies in a strong, dedicated and competent team of more than 70 medical technologists and technicians. They are professionally trained in various laboratory disciplines, as well as in the area of phlebotomy, electrocardiogram and spirometry. Our laboratory team undergoes stringent certified phlebotomy courses to ensure quality of specimens’ collection and patients’ safety. We bring the best expertise to care for all our patients.

All our laboratories are accredited under Ministry of Health. In addition, all laboratories located within all National Healthcare Group Polyclinics and Buangkok Green Medical Park are also awarded with ISO9001 and ISO 15189 accreditation, and comply with Joint Commission International (JCI) standards.
