Infectious Diseases

Infectious Diseases is a medical specialty dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Our Infectious Diseases service is designed to meet the needs of patients in the hospital and in the outpatient setting. Doctors within the specialty identify and treat infections arising from exposure to infectious pathogens, or infections that occur after surgical procedures.

Our Infectious Diseases service is designed to meet the needs of patients in the hospital and outpatient setting. Doctors within the specialty identify and treat infections arising from exposure to infectious pathogens, or infections that occur after surgical procedures. Infectious Diseases provides medical care for patients with conditions that are caused by bacteria, mycobacteria, viruses, fungi and parasite infections.

We also see and treat a large number of foreign patients from less developed countries with infections not commonly found in Singapore. Consultation services are provided to medical and surgical services by request. Patients may also be referred to the Infectious Diseases Clinic for outpatient disease management.

The specialty also provides consultation services to other departments and clinical services whenever expertise in infectious diseases is required. Additionally, it conducts lessons on communicable disease prevention and management for healthcare workers and the public. Most critically, the service plays a vital role in disease outbreak response management.

We provide the following treatment and services.

  • Blood stream infections
  • Soft tissue, bone and joint infections
  • Central nervous system infections including meningitis
  • Dengue

  • Infections related to compromised immunity (prevention and treatment)
  • Parasitic diseases
  • Pneumonia

Outpatient Services

Our Infectious Diseases clinic takes referrals for challenging infectious diseases cases from the community and assists in the management of the medical conditions. The clinic also provides post-hospital follow-up for infectious conditions, when deemed necessary by the ID consultation service.

For ambulant patients who still require intravenous antibiotic therapy, we provide an Outpatient Parenteral Antibiotic Therapy service, which would allow patients to recuperate at home while still receiving vital medical treatment.
