List of Polyclinics in Singapore

In Singapore, the primary healthcare role is fulfilled by government polyclinics and private clinics. The polyclinics provide subsidised outpatient medical care, health screening and pharmacy services, with some offering dental services as well. The Ministry of Health states that only 20% of primary healthcare is currently provided by the polyclinics versus 80% by private medical practitioners.

There are currently eighteen polyclinics located throughout the island, and these are managed by the two vertically integrated* delivery networks or clusters, National Healthcare Group (NHG) and Singapore Health Services (Singhealth), that were formed in year 2000.

* The two clusters also manage the government's restructured hospitals.
