WELCOME MESSAGE

Welcome to the inaugural Singapore Primary Care Conference 2020!

Singapore Primary Care Conference 2020 is the first ever standalone conference of its kind in Singapore, which is made possible through the close collaboration between the College of Family Physicians Singapore (CFPS) and the 3 polyclinic clusters, namely National Healthcare Group Polyclinics (NHGP), National University Polyclinics (NUP) and SingHealth Polyclinics (SHP).

This is reflected in the theme for our conference, “Strength in Unity: New Frontiers in Primary Care”. Across the world, many countries have realised and emphasized the importance of building a strong Primary Care system as the foundation for a successful and sustainable health system, and it is opportune that we come together to network and envision transforming our health system through Primary Care.

Our conference brings together Primary Care Physicians from across the region; healthcare professionals from various disciplines working in Primary Care will also join us in this inaugural event. It promises something for everyone. The pre-conference workshops will cover clinical procedures to research skills. During our main conference, our renowned speakers will provide insight into how Primary Care has successfully transformed their health systems, and we will also learn about how bringing in value and innovations can transform our practices.

The conference dinner will be an excellent opportunity to catch up with old friends, form new friendships and networks, and celebrate the achievements of our Primary Care colleagues.

We hope to see you at our Singapore Primary Care Conference 2020!
