Family doctors can play a role in managing chronic conditions!
TTSH Right Siting Initiative - Community Right Siting Programme (CRiSP)
Launched in April 2014, TTSH Community Right Siting Programme (CRiSP) is an initiative where stable patients from the Specialist Outpatient Clinics (SOCs) are discharged and followed-up by our General Practitioner (GP) partners.
Patients under CRiSP enjoy convenience and time-savings when their stabilised conditions are managed by our GP partners in the community, instead of making a trip down to the SOC. This also helps foster a closer doctor-family relationship.
This initiative has expanded beyond the 20 conditions under the Chronic Disease Management Programme (CDMP). At present, patients with the following stabilised chronic conditions may be discharged to our GP partners under CRISP:

|Cardiology ||Ischemic Heart Disease|
