The pharmacists at Sengkang General Hospital serve all patients, whether in the hospital or visiting one of the outpatient clinics. They help patients to understand the role of medication in their overall treatment plan. They also believe in providing them with the relevant information on their prescribed medications as this will ensure they take their medications regularly and work with the doctors to manage their medical problems. The department also provides medication management services to patients who have difficulties with multiple prescriptions as well as to help resolve any drug-related problems.
Upon discharge from the hospital, pharmacists will dispense and educate patients/ caregivers on the proper use of their medications and things to look out for e.g. potential side effects and drug-drug/ drug-food interactions.
