SingHealth Partners Primary Care Networks

In Singapore, GP clinics serve about 80 per cent of the population’s primary care needs.  As part of national efforts to strengthen primary care, the Ministry of Health introduced the Primary Care Network (PCN) scheme to encourage private GP clinics to organise themselves into networks that support holistic and team-based care in the community.

As of January 2018, 10 PCNs have been formed nationwide, including the SingHealth Partners PCN, which is the largest with 143 GP clinics.  

Under the PCN scheme, funding and administrative support are provided to help participating GPs to better track outcomes and monitor their patients’ health conditions more closely. Participating GPs are supported by a team of dedicated nursing, allied health and administrative staff and a chronic disease registry.
