Health Screening Packages


At NUH, we believe in the importance of preventive medicine to help you stay in the pink of health. Some medical conditions are not obvious to the untrained eye so early detection can make all the difference.


With regular health screening and proper medical advice, diseases can be averted and medical conditions can be better managed.


We have designed a range of health screening packages that enable early detection of common chronic illnesses such as heart diseases, stroke, hypertension and diabetes.


Our team of dedicated healthcare professionals will work closely with you to help you better understand your screening results and health condition and to make adjustments to your lifestyle, where necessary.


We provide our patients with the relevant knowledge to add many healthy years to their lives
