WPYW visit to NHG Diagnostics
The WP Youth Wing was invited to the Launch of NHG Diagnostics MOBILE X-Ray at Buangkok Green Medical Park yesterday.
It was indeed an eye-opener for us. About 40-50 people turned up for the event with Mrs. Yu-Foo Yee Shoon as the Guest-of-Honour. Each invited organisation had between 2-3 representatives.
The event started with a dance performance by the 'Ladies in Pink'. This is a group of breast cancer survivors. Great work! We also met up with the GM, Mr Tyrone Goh and Miss Jen Nee, Senior Executive from the Marketing Dept; the lady whom invited us.
3 fleets of condusive, fully furnished buses were filled with some latest medical gadgets to make healthcare screening more convenient.
Screenings such as mammograms, x-rays, blood tests, etc can all be done at your door step. Hence saving the hassle of queueing at polyclinics and making one's way down to any GP or hospitals for check-ups.
Besides tests, these buses also comes with friendly nurses to educate you on important health issues. It is kept clean at all time and its fully air-conditioned. Wheel-chaired bound residents can also get onto the buses without having to climb the stairs.
I never know that the Buangkok Green Medical Park housed a few organisations besides the Institute of Mental Health. We also get to see the living conditions of these patients, only the exterior. Thick solid walls, with stainless steel grilled windows complete with decent doors. We walked pass the 'Woodbridge Hospital Heritage Corner', old gates and windows were displayed. Their living conditions are much better now as compared to the past.
It was indeed a pleasure to be there yesterday.
Lastly, I would like to once again thank Jen Nee and team for having us there.
