We conduct free doctor consultations at our centre, every 2 months, for some of our elderly beneficiaries. Our resident doctor attends to our elderly beneficiaries who suffer from chronic pain, high blood sugar level, high or low blood pressure as well as those who have been recently discharged.
After reviewing their case, our resident doctor either advises them on their health condition or writes a referral memo for them to follow-up at hospitals or polyclinic for further investigation and/or to adjust their medication dosage.
Since we have started, our doctor has seen a total of 60 patients. He has also referred 8 elderly to the hospital or polyclinic for further investigations.
