The Singapore government administers a steady hand when managing the public healthcare system, ensuring that every citizen is able to afford high-grade medical services. Today, there are three public healthcare clusters bolstering this effort: the National Healthcare Group (NHG), the National University Health System (NUHS) and Singapore Health Services (SHS). The demand for robust and effective healthcare services has remained consistently high, given our nation’s disproportionately high ageing population and frequency of chronic illnesses. With a global pandemic in the very recent past, the need for talented and qualified healthcare professionals as well as administration talent to bolster healthcare processes seems to be more present than ever.

Industry Outlook
Healthcare will always be an essential and highly prized commodity. This is especially true in Singapore, where high life expectancy has led to the fastest-growing ageing population in the region. The healthcare sector will thus need to reinforce and strengthen its workforce to accommodate the rising demand for specialised elderly care as well as generalised accessible and quality healthcare.
