Swine Flu: Safety precautions at the clinic

With the impending arrival of Swine flu on our shores, our clinic has implemented the necessary precautions to protect our patients.

If you are having a fever and flu symptoms, please let our staff know. You will have your temperature taken and if it is elevated, you will be required to sit outside the clinic. All this is necessary to prevent the spread of the disease.

So far there has not been any Swine Flu cases in Singapore, but it is only a matter of time before we get our first case. The global community is much better prepared after SARS and Bird Flu which might explain why this time round the impact of Swine Flu is not has devastating as expected. But we still need to be on our guard and look after ourselves and our family as well as the community around us by doing the necessary things to prevent the virus from spreading.
