SingHealth Transplant drives the development and expansion of transplant services, as well as the advancement of academic medicine through transplant education and research in SingHealth. The Singapore General Hospital (SGH) Campus is home to nine different transplant programmes that cover the body’s major organs (including the largest organ, the skin), stem cells and corneas. A transplant patient at SingHealth will be cared for by a tailored and multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals which will be there throughout the transplant journey – from preparation, through to the transplant surgery, recovery and post-transplant care.
Loh Pui Yoke
Aptly termed as the 'Gift of Life, Gift of Hope', transplantation enables patients with end-stage diseases to have a new lease of life.
At the SingHealth Duke-NUS Transplant Centre (SDTC), I am given the opportunity to co-drive new areas of transplantation, from strengthening our process of obtaining transplants to putting in place key enablerssuch as funding mechanisms. It is particularly rewarding to know how each step along the way – no matter how small, can bring about positive downstream impacts for our transplant patients, allowing them to enjoy better quality of life post-transplant.
I joined the SDTC knowing little about transplantation and the gamut of work here. However, I was grateful forthe helpful multidisciplinary team and ready access to relevant literature and resources that swifly brought my understanding of transplantation up to speed.
Besides picking up technical and professional skills, close collaboration with a diverse team of clinical and non-clinical staff also helped to build up my soft skills, in turn developing empathy towards co-workers, which is crucial in achieving our collective milestones together as one team.
