Name and Constituency of Member of Parliament
Mr Melvin Yong Yik Chye
MP for Radin Mas
Question No. 5149
To ask the Minister for Health (a) what will be the measure of success of the recently launched Healthy Longevity Clinic; and (b) whether there are plans to expand the services offered by the Healthy Longevity Clinic to other parts of Singapore, particularly polyclinics, when the current pilot at Alexandra Hospital proves to be successful.
1 The launch of the Healthy Longevity Clinic at Alexandra Hospital was very well covered in the media and generated much public interest. It is essentially a research project, to try to develop effective and practical interventions for the future. The clinic is therefore recruiting research participants for now, and there are currently no plans for longevity clinic services to be offered at polyclinics and other public hospitals. But we hope with investments in research and development in longevity science, and supported by national policies such as Healthier SG and Age Well SG, we will develop the capabilities to support our population to live long and healthy lives.
