Blood test and X-ray services available in mobile health screening
SINGAPORE: Three mobile containers, owned by the National Healthcare Group (NHG), are providing blood pressure check, cholesterol and glucose level tests.
The largest of the three is more than nine metres long, complete with a consultation room, a blood testing area and X-ray facilities.
More services, such as pap smears and wireless transmission of digital X-ray images, will be available in the future.
The NHG is now working with nursing homes, religious groups and grassroot organisations to make healthcare screening even more convenient.
"We are now able to have a more comprehensive health screening closer to the community. Prior to this, only limited tests can be performed at community level. Services such as mammography, X-rays, and PAP smears are only available at the hospitals or clinics,” said Dr Tyrone Goh, general manager of NHG Diagnostics.
