Healthier SG focus group discussion

The College of Family Physicians Singapore and the SMA co-organised a Healthier SG focus group discussion for GPs. The session was held physically on Saturday, 27 August 2022, at the College of Medicine Building.

Updates on the Healthier SG initiative were provided by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), followed by a focus group discussion with GPs in several smaller groups. Attendees provided candid feedback on concerns and also a wish list of what they would like to be implemented.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank MOH and AIC for their assistance.
