The St. Andrew’s Community Hospital (SACH) Mobile Clinic Service is an initiative by the St. Andrew’s Cathedral, facilitated by SACH, to provide free mobile medical services to low-income elderly and residents living in the heartlands, and blue-collared foreign workers living in far-flung dormitories. Operated out of a modified mini-bus and assisted by a large pool of medical and non-medical volunteers, this service recognises small community groups within Singapore who may not be receiving adequate medical care due to language, financial or physical limitations.

Going out to the community once a month, the mobile clinic provides free medical consultation, basic treatment and medicine to these needy groups. The team also takes the opportunity to disseminate health education and disease prevention messages to the communities they serve.

Mobile Clinic Service for Low-Income Residents

  • 4-hours service at the void deck of a HDB block where the low-income residents live in.
  • Home Medical Visits by a team of volunteer professionals are made to the elderly who are unable to travel down to the void decks.

Mobile Clinic Service for Foreign Workers

  • 4-hours service at an open space in a foreign workers’ dormitory.

Offering Your Support
The Mobile Clinic Service is free-of-charge for its beneficiaries. To offer your support for the continuation and expansion of this service, please call SACH to find out about volunteer opportunities and ways to make a donation.
