Minister of Health Ong Ye Kung paid tribute to the family doctors in Singapore, as they celebrated the World Family Doctor Day yesterday (19 May).
Here is what he said on Facebook
Today is World Family Doctor Day – first declared by the World Organisation of Family Doctors in 2010.
It is to recognise the contribution of primary care doctors, who are the first line of care for many patients.
More than that, they are also a trusted friend who understands our health conditions and have our well-being at heart.
In Singapore, they will also be key drivers of our #HealthierSG movement to keep residents healthy and healthier.
Thank you to all our family doctors for always being there for us!
