Overview

Health screening plays an important role in detecting any underlying diseases even if you feel perfectly well without any signs and symptoms of the disease. Many diseases such as diabetes, stroke and heart disease are known as silent killers, and often, the symptoms of these diseases may not be obvious. With early detection through regular health screening, followed by appropriate treatment, any abnormality detected can be managed and this will lower the risks of serious complications.

The Health Enrichment Centre in Tan Tock Seng Hospital is a one-stop centre that offers health screening programmes designed to suit every individual's health needs. Our dedicated team of doctors and nurses will assess your health profile together with you, and recommend the relevant screening tests based on your lifestyle and personal and family histories.

We will then review your screening results, offer medical advice and lifestyle counselling, as well as provide you with a personalised medical report.
