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 committed to 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.
