​​​​​​​​​​​Introduction to Community Health Centres

Community Health Centres (CHCs) work with your General Practitioners (GPs) to support the care of your chronic condition, through the provision of ancillary services.

​The services help you and your GP to keep an eye out for early signs of complications. Once detected, treatment can start early to prevent further deterioration of your conditions.

The Process

For better continuity of care, you need to be referred by a GP to receive services at a CHC. Your GP will help you to make the appointments with the CHC.

On the day of the appointment, a trained healthcare professional at the CHC will perform the referred services. Your referring GP will receive updates and reports for review and will follow-up with you.

All services are by appointment only.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions about CHCs? We may have the answer here.
Community Health Centres (CHCs) are centres that provide ancillary services to support the clinical care offered by General Practitioners (GPs) for patients with chronic conditions. Early disease detection and intervention aims to reduce complications caused by chronic diseases. For example, regular diabetic eye and foot screening enable patients with diabetes to identify eye and/or foot problems early and be referred for treatment if needed. Other services such as nurse counselling, and dietetic services empower patients with knowledge and skills to better manage their chronic condition(s). These services are provided by trained nurses and allied health professionals such as, dieticians and physiotherapists. CHCs are conveniently located within the neighbourhood to allow GPs and patients easy access to the services.​

You must be referred by a GP to receive services at CHC. Your GP will help you to make the appointments with the CHC.

On the day of the appointment, a trained healthcare professional at the CHC will perform the referred services. Updates will be provided to the referring GP and reports will be sent to your GP for review and to follow-up with you.

​All services are by appointment only.

CHCs are supported by registered mainstream healthcare practitioners such as nurses or allied health professionals with at least 5 years of relevant experience in healthcare operations. They are supported by other administrative staff who oversee and manage the CHC’s day-to-day administration and are employed by one of the public health clusters or private healthcare providers.​
The CHC provides services to support the chronic care provided by the GPs. For continuity of care, patients must be referred by GPs and the reports are sent back to the referring GP for review and follow up with the patients. Hence, it is not necessary to have a doctor at the CHC.​
