National University Health System Diagnostics (NUHS Diagnostics) is a strategic business unit set up within the National University Health System. As of 1 October 2022, we run the phlebotomy, laboratory and diagnostic imaging services at the National University Polyclinics (NUP). NUHS Diagnostics facilities are available in all seven NUP clinics, providing affordable routine diagnostic testing closer to patients’ homes.
Together with NUP, NUHS Diagnostics is a ‘one-stop’ Centre providing diagnostic services to residents in the western part of Singapore. Our goal is to provide patients with easy access to affordable testing, where patients can have their laboratory tests and diagnostic imaging/radiography scan services done at locations close to their homes. General practitioners, family medicine clinics and community nursing homes will also be able to refer their patients to our diagnostic facilities, where they can receive test results in a short period of time, improving care for their patients.
Our workforce of rigorously-trained diagnostics professionals is equipped to serve the wider community of residents living in the western part of Singapore in partnership with General Practitioners, family medicine clinics and community nursing homes based in the western region. Being a part of NUHS – an Integrated Academic Health System – allows NUHS Diagnostics to leverage and access a wealth of resources within our cluster. Patients triaged at any of our primary care diagnostic facilities will be seamlessly referred to our tertiary diagnostic facilities for specialised testing and imaging capability, thus reducing the long waiting time for further investigations at the hospitals.
Aligning to the NUHS’ vision and mission, NUHS Diagnostics is committed to the advancement of health screening technologies through collaboration with researchers and patients in community-based health research. We prioritise our staff’s professional development and continual upskilling to stay on top of healthcare and technological advancements. Together with NUP, we strive to improve the patient experience and deliver incredible care to our patients and our community. We are proud to be part of the national initiative to create a healthy community, supporting primary care clinicians and patients in the community.
