What is a Medical Report?

A patient's written consent for release of medical information allows the hospital to release medical information for a stated purpose.
For patients below 21 years of age, the consent of the parent is required.
For deceased patients, consent from the appointed representative of the estate is required. Where applicable, a medical report consent form must be completed. A copy of the death certificate and other supporting documents, e.g. marriage certificate and letters of administration, are required as proof of the representative's relationship to the patient.

A copy of the patient's NRIC/identification documents is required, and payment is necessary as well (see the chart below for more details).

Cheque payments are required for requests via mail. Cheques are to be crossed and made payable to “Tan Tock Seng Hospital Pte Ltd”.

How to Request Medical Information

Requests for medical information can be made in the following manner:
1. For medical reports, download and complete a Consent for Release of Medical Information form
2. By submitting an insurance or MOM form to be completed by the physician, for example, MOM workmen compensation form, insurance physician statement, and clinical abstract form (the patient must complete all relevant portions before submission)
3. A patient can write in permitting the hospital to release medical information for a stated purpose
4. By applying at HIS in person
5. Interested third parties can write in together with patient's consent, permitting the hospital to release medical information for a stated purpose. For foreign workers who have returned to their native country, employers are also required to submit the workers' written consent and cancellation of work permit

Note:
A Consent by Next-of-Kin for Estate Claims form must be included when medical information of a deceased patient is required for the purposes of estate claims.

A request for medical report will be processed only upon receipt of your documents, consent form (Consent for Release of Medical Information) or insurance form and the appropriate payment.

When Will the Requested Medical Information Be Ready?

As a general guide, completion of medical reports is between four and six weeks.

Patients can request the medical report to be:
Mailed to them — the mailing address must be provided on application
For personal collection at HIS, the patient's contact number must be provided on application
