PaedsENGAGE

What is PaedsENGAGE?

PaedsENGAGE, a collaborative initiative led by NUH and KK Women's and Children's Hospital (KKH), partners with general practitioners (GPs) in the private sector. This programme focuses on right-siting of care for children with mild to moderate paediatric conditions across Singapore.  

For non-urgent conditions, it is advisable to consult a PaedsENGAGE GP first. This approach enables our Children's Emergency team to focus on patients with critical and life-threatening conditions. 

GPs participating in PaedsENGAGE undergo a comprehensive educational training programme, equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge to manage common paediatric conditions, including: 
 

  • Fever 
  • Breathlessness 
  • Vomiting 
  • Diarrhoea 
  • Rash 
  • Simple injuries 

An e-brochure with more information is available for download  here.
