The Department of Laboratory Medicine provides relevant testing and diagnostic services to physicians, healthcare providers, researchers and epidemiologists for the benefit of patients and of the general population of Singapore.
We adhere to high quality standards by conforming to the regulatory requirements set by the Ministry of Health of Singapore as well as the accreditation requirements from the College of American Pathologists (CAP). Aside from CAP, we also subscribe to external quality assurance programmes provided by RANDOX International Assessment Scheme (RIQAS), the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA), Quality Control for Molecular Diagnostics (QCMD) and the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) of Singapore.
We have adopted a quality management system which aims to produce accurate, reliable and timely results. All staff are committed to the culture of quality and share the responsibility for identifying nonconformities or opportunities for improvement to ensure that the laboratory continuously meets the needs of its internal and external customers. We maintain a competent workforce by engaging them in continuous learning.
