We are still here at Tampines Central Community Complex!

Just a quick note to let all our patients know that we are still here at Tampines Central Community Complex!  The People's Association will be moving out by the end of June 2018, but our half of the building is still functioning.  So the supermarket, food court, child care centres are still in operation and so are we!
