CERVICAL CANCER VACCINE

Cervical cancer vaccine is available at our clinic. The course consists of 3 doses over a 6-month period.

  • The vaccines are currently approved for use in females aged 10 and above.
  • The vaccines protect against infection by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
  • It is preferably given before first sexual exposure.
  • Vaccination does not substitute for cervical cancer screening by regular Pap smears for sexually active females.

MOH's Expert Committee on Immunisation (ECI) has recommended that HPV vaccines, which are clinically safe and effective, be included into the National Childhood Immunisation Programme (NCIP) for females, in order to prevent cervical cancer. (30 Sep 2010)

HFMD

The numbers of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) cases are still high in Singapore. Actually HFMD cases are seen all year round in Singapore. Every now and then, however, there are outbreaks especially in places like childcare centres, kindergartens and primary schools.

According to the latest MOH figures, there are 732 reported cases of HFMD for the week 37, 12-18 Sept 2010 (compared to 157 in 2009).

HFMD is highly contagious. It is usually spread by direct contact from person to person via body fluids like saliva and nasal discharge, fecal material and fluid from the rash.

The diagnosis of HFMD is usually based on clinical symptoms, which include:
  • low-grade fever
  • oral ulcers
  • rashes in palms, soles or buttocks
  • loss of appetite and lethargy
  • some may also have mild gastric flu or cough/cold symptoms

*The pictures below are taken from the Health Promotion Board website.*

The child with HFMD is usually not very sick but he should stay 'isolated' at home for 5-7 days even if the symptoms are mild. Very rarely, HFMD can develop complications especially with the EV71 virus. Seek immediate medical attention if the child is vomiting excessively, dehydrated, extremely tired or unusually irritated.

Management of HFMD is usually symptomatic. This includes 'tender loving care' from care-takers. Doctors usually prescribe:

  • topical oral medication for the painful ulcers
  • fever/pain medications
  • anti-inflammation medications to help with recovery
  • and rarely antiviral medications for the very sick or immune-suppressed patients
  • medical leave for 5-7 days
Hygiene practices are of paramount importance for the infected child, care-takers and family members. Wash hands before meals and after visiting toilets. Do not share eating utensils and toys. Also remember to look out for symptoms among the family members including adults.

Lastly, send the child back to childcare or school only when there are no more:

  • fever
  • oral ulcers
  • rashes.

About OneDoctors

Our History and Vision

We are a group of four doctors who were the founding directors of the Silver Cross Group of Clinics. When the four partners started out more than a decade ago, our shared vision was to provide effective, up-to-date and ethical health care for the community. There was, in particular, a need for an extended hour health care service which was easily accessible to the public. In 1997, our first two pioneer doctors, Dr Soh Wah Ngee and Dr Boey Kok Hoe established the very first Silver Cross clinic in Holland Village, providing a 24-hour, 7 day a week medical service, which was the first such practice in the central region of Singapore.

Following the success of the Holland Village practice, Dr Daniel Lim Wei Liang and Dr Jasper Yang Chyan Han, together with Dr Toh Sheng Cheong as an associate doctor, started the second Silver Cross clinic in Yishun in 1999. Subsequently, to meet the increasing demand for our services, more Silver Cross clinics were established island wide, in Jurong West, Marsiling, Upper Bukit Timah and Serangoon Central.

Our successful formula was due wholly to a select team of dedicated physicians, who were not only highly experienced and qualified, but more importantly, shared the vision of the team in providing quality, ethical medical care.

Our Future

As our medical practice thrived and progressed, we decided to move on and embark on a new medical practice named OneDoctors. Our new name embodies the common vision and spirit shared by the same group of doctors. We endeavour to continue our high standard of medical care in all our practices.

In a fast changing world with ever evolving heath care needs and medical advancements, we will adhere to our original vision which we began and realised years ago, that is, to provide effective, up-to-date and ethical health care for the community.

It is great privilege to serve you at our OneDoctors Clinics. Do continue to stay healthy with us!
