Director of NUHCS Prof Tan Huay Cheem shared that it is not always distance that determines which hospital should treat a patient in a critical condition, but the facilities which offer that patient the best chance of survival. Prof Tan noted that NUH is a high-volume, 24/7 heart attack centre supported by a multidisciplinary cardiology team able to treat the highest-risk patient. This is why NUH and NTFGH have been working with SCDF to have all patients in the western part of Singapore sent directly to NUH. Prof Tan assured that there is no need for concern over the extra distance travelled to NUH as care is not compromised but rather enhanced.

调查: 糖尿病前期患者中 已婚人士更注重饮食健康 (Study: Married individuals among pre-diabetic patients pay more attention to dietary health)

A study led by NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health researchers Dr Raymond Lim and A/Prof Wong Mee Lian investigated 433 patients with pre-diabetes, to find out whether their daily diet followed the My Healthy Plate recommendations of the Health Promotion Board (HPB). The study showed that only 57.3 per cent of the patients followed the recommendations, of which nearly 90 per cent of the respondents were married. Married individuals were more likely to report meeting the recommendations compared to those who were single. The in-depth interviews suggested that this could be due to family influence, particularly spousal influence, as it was usually the wife in the household who decided on the groceries to buy and the food to be served during mealtimes.
