Your SingHealth Story: Catherine Tay

“I started out as a typist in Tan Tock Seng Hospital in 1977, and saw typewriters change to word processors, then to desktops and laptops. Living through two pandemics in the healthcare sector has certainly been memorable. Like with COVID-19, we had to take our temperature daily during the SARS period. Back then, we recorded our temperature using pen and paper, and sent out SMS reminders to individual doctors.

I have been with the Neurology department for nearly half my career and saw how NNI has grown, with the increase in number of doctors, administrative staff and specialties. Having come so far, I believe Singapore’s healthcare system has a bright future and we will continue to raise the standard in patient care, research and education."
