March 8 is International Women’s Day (IWD), a day dedicated in
honour of women all around the world. We felt that one of the most empowering and inspiring ways to celebrate IWD is
to read the contributions made by some of our trailblazing women here at SKH.
We will be sharing their stories throughout the month of March. We hope through
their stories, we can inspire, uplift and remind ourselves about the limitless
potential we all have.
Dr Wong has been integral in the planning of the infrastructure,
processes and services not only for Allied Health services but for SKH as a
whole. She has also been a role model and mentor to allied health
professionals and other healthcare professionals, with many helming leadership
and headship positions.
Recognised as a leader in healthcare, Dr Wong has been appointed
to numerous committees spanning a variety of portfolios that encompass safety,
quality, patient experience, clinical services, information technology and drug
advisory, at organizational, cluster and national levels. As Chief Pharmacist,
MOH, she oversees the National Pharmacy Strategy which spans over a number of initiatives,
encompassing pharmaceutical care excellence, developing a confident pharmacy
workforce, re-designing the supply chain, and information and technology
Dr Wong has contributed greatly to the pharmacy profession through the
strategic development of pharmacists and she was instrumental in developing the
nation’s pharmacy competency framework and career pathway, which serves to
right-site talent and allow pharmacists to pursue and excel in their passion.
This successful implementation has led to propagation of the same for the other
Allied Health professionals in the SingHealth Cluster and nationally.
In 2008, Dr Wong made history when she became the first
Singaporean to be given the Federation of Asian Pharmaceutical Associations
(FAPA) Ishidate Award for hospital pharmacy, adding to her many key
achievements and accolades. Dr Wong’s wealth of experience and selfless sharing
has guided numerous healthcare professionals, and her vision for the future of healthcare
continues to inspire many more.
