GPFirst aims to encourage patients to visit their GP first instead of going to the emergency department if they are experiencing mild to moderate / non-emergency conditions so they can be cared for more promptly. This will also allow emergency care teams to focus on urgent cases such as heart attacks and strokes.
Patients who are referred to the Emergency Department (ED) or Urgent Care Centre (UCC) by a participating GP clinic will be prioritised over non-emergency cases when they arrive at the respective ED or UCC. In addition, they will receive a
$50 subsidy on the prevailing ED/UCC attendance fee.
This programme is open to GP clinics within the regions of the participating acute hospitals or UCC. To join the GPFirst Programme, you may obtain the sign up form by emailing the respective contact nearest to your clinic location:
Khoo Teck Puat Hospital,
Urgent Care Centre @ Admiralty
National University Hospital,
Ng Teng Fong General Hospital
Alexandra Hospital Urgent Care Centre
Clinics are encouraged to partner / sign up with the acute hospital or UCC of close proximity in their region. Cross-regional GPFirst referrals is enabled hence participating clinic have the option to refer patients to the "most appropriate" GPFirst acute hospitals.
