About Us

Diabetes in Singapore is a growing concern. It can deeply affect yourquality of life if not well-controlled, and cause complications. The Ministry of Health has declared 'war on diabetes' and has committedto help Singaporeans live free from diabetes, as well as help those with the condition control it better. SingHealth fully supports this.

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Diabetes Centre aims to deliver better care and outcomes for our patients by adopting a new, transformational model of care. We bring together different specialists and allied health professionals across SingHealth to organise care around you and your needs. This integrated model of care enables us to set new standards for diabetes-related patient care, education and research.

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Diabetes Centre was formed in 2015 to oversee and coordinate the delivery of diabetes care within the SingHealth Hospitals and National Specialty Centres, including Singapore General Hospital (SGH), Changi General Hospital (CGH), Sengkang General Hospital (SKH), KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH), Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC), and SingHealth Polyclinics (SHP). The Centre forms a unique platform for the collaborative work of a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals.

The Centre aims to meet the needs of our patients throughout the diabetes continuum of care; from prediabetes to late-stage diabetes with complications. We are dedicated to achieve the best outcomes for our patients by combining clinical expertise with the latest advances in treatment, research and education.

Our team of primary care physicians and specialists are experienced in the assessment and management of diabetes and the associated complications. They are supported by a strong and dedicated team of diabetes nurse educators, dietitians, pharmacists, podiatrists, medical social workers and psychologists. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures that people with diabetes get comprehensive medical care, patient education, and aggressive prevention and management of complications.

SingHealth Diabetes Registry (SDR)

SDR holds patient data, from 2007 onwards, collected from SingHealth Institutions including 9 Polyclinics, 4 Hospitals and 3 National Specialty Centres. Subjects with diabetes are identified through diagnosis codes (ICD 9, ICD10 and SNOMED) and medications. As of June 2017, there are approximately 193,000 unique subjects within the SDR. The data fields include subject demographics, duration and subtype of diabetes, smoking history, co-morbidities, retinal screening data, mortality data, visit locations, clinical measures, laboratory tests, prescribed and dispensed medications and attendances for diabetic complications screening. The SDR also contain data (i.e. date, diagnosis, length of stay) for visits to Emergency Departments and hospital admissions as well as amputations data. It is linked to other data sources (e.g. financial) via the SingHealth Electronic Health Intelligence System (eHINTS).
