WL&H Resumes Dietetics and Medical Services in Phase 1
The Singapore Government has also announced the lifting of the Circuit Breaker measures in phases, with certain medical services that can resume during phase 1, such as (but not limited to):
- Specialist Outpatient Services
- Medical Procedures (refering to treatments and surgeries that cannot be differed for another 3-6 months)
- Allied Health Services (e.g. dietetics)
- Chronic Disease Management
- Cancer Screening and Surveillance Services
- Adult and child vaccinations, including flu vaccinations
In line with this, WL&H will resume selected medical and wellness services, including dietetics and chronic disease management, but will prioritise urgent and acute illnesses. For a full list of services, please visit our website. We do seek your understanding and patience should you experience longer wait times. Please do give us a call if you would like to check if the service you are looking to receive has resumed.
Safe distancing and staggered appointment times will continue to be maintained and we will carry on with running the telemedical services to reduce your risk of exposure.
Southern Flu Vaccinations Available at WL&H
As we move into the second half of the year, the Southern Flu season, caused by the Influenza Virus, become more prevalent.
Influenza is a viral infection caused by various Influenza viruses. It targets our respiratory system. Specifically, the nose, throat and occasionally our lungs. Influenza viruses usually cause symptoms more severe than the common cold.
The Flu Vaccine is Medisave claimable once a year for Singaporeans and Singaporean Permanent Residents.
It is recommended for individuals to get the flu vaccine at least once a year to be prepared against the Influenza Virus.
