Update as at Tuesday 7 April:
Singapore Enhanced Social Distancing Measures
In line with COVID-19 alerts, enhanced social distancing measures will apply for all people residing in Singapore from Tuesday 7 April for an initial period of one month (As of 21 April the government has extended these measures until 1st June). As a result of these measures, the provision of health services will be limited to those deemed essential. Essential health services are defined as those that would result in significant or rapid deterioration of a patient’s medical condition if not performed, potentially threatening a patient’s health and wellbeing. As Icon delivers essential health services, we will continue to provide care at our Icon Cancer Centre and Icon Haematology sites for patients undergoing essential treatments.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS OF ICON CANCER CENTRE AND ICON HAEMATOLOGY:
Our clinical team have triaged essential versus non-essential services that are due to be performed over the month from 7 April to 4 May (both days inclusive), in accordance with the Government’s criteria. Please note the following:
- If your treatment is deemed ESSENTIAL, you will not be contacted. Your appointment will continue as normal and you are not required to do anything.
- If your treatment is deemed to be NON-ESSENTIAL Icon will personally contact you to discuss next steps within 48 hours of the new measures taking effect (with closer appointments prioritised). For patients with non-essential treatments we will be offering a telemedicine and medication home delivery service (prescription medications only) to support your health and wellbeing. Your health remains important to Icon and our doctors, and we will seek to continue supporting you under these new measures.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your treatment during this period of enhanced social distancing, please reach out to our Concierge mobile on (65) 8597 6128 or contact the clinic directly.
