GPFirst is a partnership between Changi General Hospital (CGH) A&E and participating GPs (General Practitioners or family doctors) in eastern Singapore.


Your GP is generally the first medical professional you should contact when you feel unwell.

He or she is there to listen, reassure, offer advice and, in some cases, identify what's wrong.

Go to your family doctor or neighbourhood general practitioner (GP) if:

  • your symptoms are mild to moderate
  • you have common medical conditions like colds, small cuts or stomach ache
  • it is not an emergency

Go to the Accident & Emergency Dept (A&E) of the hospital ONLY for serious emergencies that could result in complications or death and thus require immediate medical attention (e.g; strokes, heart attacks, serious injuries)
