Diagnostics laboratory services are available and accessible for your regular health screenings.
National Healthcare Group Diagnostics (NHGD) is a unit of NHG that provides quality and affordable imaging and laboratory services at the primary healthcare level.
Traditionally, diagnostics services including X-rays, mammograms and electrocardiography were found only in hospitals for patients undergoing secondary or tertiary treatment for later-stage conditions. However, early and regular health screenings are important for us to know our health inside out.
Accessible diagnostics services can save lives by helping us to prevent or get the earliest treatment for any potential health conditions.
NHGD offers the following diagnostics laboratory services at all NHG Polyclinics:
• Clinical laboratory (general laboratory and panel laboratory tests)
• Bone mineral densitometry* (BMD)
• Electrocardiogram (ECG)
• General X-ray (chest, head and neck, upper and lower limbs and trunk)
• Screening mammogram*#
• Ultrasound*^ (abdomen, kidneys and bladder, liver/hepatobiliary system, pelvis and thyroid)
mobile services also operate year-round, allowing convenient, easy access to these diagnostics services.
NHGD has received international accreditation, such as ISO 15189:2003 (Medical Laboratory — particular requirement for quality and competence). A joint effort with National Healthcare Group Polyclinics has also helped the group achieve the Joint International Commission (Ambulatory Care Standard) accreditation.
