Important things to take note of after booking your Health Screening appointment with us:

Before your screening day (for screenings with blood test):

You are required to fast 10 to 12 hours before your appointment date (from midnight before the day of your Health Screening appointment). No food or beverages are allowed during the fast, with the exception of plain water. Fasting allows blood sugars to stabilize in order to achieve more accurate blood test results for your glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides levels. Please feel free to help yourself to the light refreshments provided once your blood has been drawn by our nurse and/or after completing your ultrasound abdomen examination. The duration of your Health Screening should be about 3-4 hours.

 

If your selected health screening package includes a stool test, avoid iron supplements for 3 days prior to the collection of the sample. Collect your stool sample (about half a teaspoon)  and put it in the labeled stool container provided the night before or on the morning of the appointment.

Do not take any medication (for example: diabetic medication, hypertension, cholesterol, and supplements) on your health screening day. Please prepare them and bring them along so that you may take them after your blood test is done.

If you are not feeling well, please postpone your health screening to a later date as illness and certain medications (e.g. antibiotics) can affect your screening results.

Your urine specimen (sterile container provided) will be collected on the screening day.

 

What to bring on your screening day:

For Identification and Verification Purpose, please bring your NRIC (for Singaporeans) or Passport/Employment Pass/Work Permit/Visit Pass (for Foreigners) and the Health Screening registration form, as well as the Stool Sample collected in the container provided earlier.

Dear Ladies, few things for you to take note :

If you are menstruating on the day of your appointment, please inform the nurses on arrival. You will not be able to do your urine and stool tests, as well as the Pap Smear as the presence of blood in these tests would produce inaccurate results.
