He also spoke about the government’s Healthier SG initiative, which was launched in 2022. Healthier SG aims to have Singaporeans and permanent residents take charge of their own healthcare by enrolling with a single doctor who will support them in their health needs throughout their lives.

Mr Ong said that the new health screening centre will play a key role in the implementation of Healthier SG. He added that the centre will provide Singaporeans with the opportunity to access preventive care services in a convenient and accessible setting.

The opening of the new health screening centre is a positive development for Singaporeans. It is a sign that the government is committed to promoting preventive care and helping Singaporeans to live healthier lives.
