Personal Data Protection
We Respect and Keep Your Data Safe
The Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) protects your personal data while enabling
organisations to use your data reasonably to serve you. We, as a public healthcare institution,
respect and keep your data safe by:
limiting access to only doctors and healthcare personnel
who are involved in your care, and the supporting internal processes,
conducting regular checks to ensure only authorised
persons have accessed your data, and
removing details that identify you when using your data
for internal purposes as far as possible.
Serving You as a Public Healthcare Institution
When you seek care at other healthcare providers, we will share relevant data with
them through trusted information systems like the National Electronic Health Record (NEHR) and the
Next Generation Electronic Medical Record (NGEMR)system. We may use your personal data to
invite you to participate in suitable care programmes, or shortlist you for participation in
relevant research studies.
As a public healthcare institution, we share relevant data and participate in national
and multi-agency efforts to:
review healthcare policies and requirements,
review programmes that ensure patient safety and improve the quality of healthcare
conduct disease surveillance to address public health concerns, and
train future generations of healthcare professionals.
Please be assured that if your personal data is collected, used or disclosed for these purposes, we
protect it as required under the PDPA and other relevant legislation such as the Private Hospitals
Medical Clinics Act.
Please refer to our NHG Personal Data Protection Policy for our data protection commitment.
