Acute Primary Care: Managing These Conditions

Suffering from some primary health ailment like the flu, gastric discomfort, or what looks like a minor fracture? Visit a National Healthcare Group (NHG) polyclinic in your neighbourhood — rather than heading straight for the A&E.

Acute Primary Care
There is no need to panic and go to the Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments for colds, general physical discomfort, or sudden aches and pains (primary care). 

National Healthcare Group's (NHG) polyclinic team of doctors and nurses can treat and manage conditions like:
Common cold/flu
Aches and pains
Gastric discomfort
Minor fractures/sprains
Minor cuts/wounds, etc

Many acute conditions are episodic and generally non-life-threatening. They can usually be resolved without a long-term follow-up.
