CONSIDER THE HEALTH IMPLICATIONS BEFORE GOING UNDER THE KNIFE TO LOOK PRETTY

In this post, I have shared my experience in mitigating the long term effects of cosmetic surgeries, which for my case was an issue to be dealt with over time. I hope that this will serve as a point of reference for those contemplating surgeries, and as a timely reminder for those who have already undergone the surgeries to take care of yourself and go for regular check-ups to ensure that everything is in order.

UNGRATEFUL SICK HUSBAND THANKS GOD INSTEAD OF WIFE FOR NURSING HIM BACK TO HEALTH

I wish to get this off my chest. I'm so sick and tired of my selfish and ungrateful husband who only thinks about himself and his God. My spouse was diagnosed with Cancer since 2009 ....Instead of thanking His Lord for giving him a good Wife for taking Care of him...He said it is GOD who healed HIM....GOD did miracle to him....I tired of HOW GREAT he think of his GOD. IF I do not do above endless things/tasks for him...he thinks he can get well? Somtimes I feel like running away...and LET his GOD handle it...

MEDISHIT LIFE SCAM DOESN’T NEED ANY EXPLANATION

This is another instance of a poorly thought through scheme and there’s really nothing ‘free’ because public resources are funded by tax payers. What the PAP has done is complicate a scheme and subsequently requiring public resources to explain the complications it has created. Seems like our scholars ‘eat finish nothing to do’.

LADY RUSHED TO A&E AT KKH, BUT IS SHOCKED TO SEE GROSS OVERCHARGES IN BILL

I just discovered yesterday on 9 Oct 2015, when i went to KK hospital in an apparent emergency gynae issue as recommended by my GP, only to realise that their practice of emergency charges is not consistent with A&E depts of other public funded hospitals. When queried, staff said that theirs is called an "O&G 24 hr clinic" and not called the A&E. Hence, walk-in patients in emergency cases are charged private rates. This info wasnt made known upfront to me until i saw my bill.

SGH DOCTOR CLAIMS MEDICAL SCIENCE COULD NOT DETECT MAN’S STAGE 4 CANCER AFTER FAILING TO SPOT IT

Our reader came across a very unfortunate case of a Singaporean wife who had written to the government's REACH web portal to complain about the treatment that she and her husband had received at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH). According to the wife, Mrs Mala, her husband had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Doctors had failed to spot the cancer until it was too late to treat despite 3 CT scans over the course of 6 months. When the couple tried to demand answers from doctors at SGH, they were brushed off and told that it would not have made a difference even if the cancer had been detected early.

WP: WHY DID THE GOVERNMENT DELAY ANNOUNCEMENT OF HEP C OUTBREAK?

The WP has taken the Singapore government to task for its decision to reveal information about the Hepatitis C outbreak at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) 4 months after it was first discovered in June 2015. In a statement on the WP website issued today (7th Oct), the WP said that since SGH had been aware of the infection cluster since early June 2015, it should have made the information public earlier because a Hepatitis C outbreak is a potential public health risk to all citizens, especially those who wish to seek treatment at the hospital.
