Residents in Bedok can look forward to the re-opening of SingHealth Polyclinics (SHP) - Bedok at the new integrated community facility, Heartbeat@Bedok on 31 July 2017. The Heartbeat@Bedok located along Bedok North Street 1, will house Bedok Polyclinic, Kampong Chai Chee Community Centre, a Sports Recreational Centre, a Senior Care Centre, Bedok Public Library and other commercial spaces.
2. At the new location, Bedok Polyclinic will provide patients easier access to healthcare in a holistic and conducive environment. The Polyclinic will adopt a wellness centric approach and work with the community partners in Heartbeat@Bedok to encourage patients to manage their conditions at home and within the community through remote care, patient empowerment and community help programmes. New support services such as physiotherapy, podiatry and diagnostic radiology will also be available to cater to the needs of the community.
3. The existing Bedok Polyclinic which has served the Bedok community for the past four decades will be closed from 28 to 29 July 2017 to facilitate the move to Heartbeat@Bedok.
4. Patients who require follow-up treatments have been given appointments at the new Bedok Polyclinic or at a nearby polyclinic of their choice. Patients who require same day treatment during the two day closure period (28 and 29 July) are advised to visit general practitioners and dental clinics near their homes. A listing of nearby Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) participating general practitioners and dental clinics is attached. More information is also available on our website at http://polyclinic.singhealth.com.sg.
