Excellence in Public Service Awards

Excellence in Public Service Awards 2017

Our NTFGH Principal Medical Social Worker, Alvin Chua, received the PS21 Distinguished Star Service Award at the Excellence in Public Service Awards 2017 ceremony. Lianhe Zaobao featured him on 22 May for handling a rather special case of a 20-year-old patient. The young lady have had to move from place to place ever since her parents passed away when she was young. She sought treatment at NTFGH after she was assaulted by her friend whom she was staying with. Kudos to Alvin for his passion and dedication in going the extra mile for this patient and others in need!

Service Excellence & Commitment to Care
Healthcare Humanity Awards

The Healthcare Humanity Awards (HHA) are given out to healthcare workers who are inspirational models. They exemplify the values of courage, dedication, selflessness, and steadfastness in ethics, compassion and humanity. These values underscore healthcare as a noble profession, and not merely a job.

The HHA is a continuing legacy of the Courage Awards, which were first given out in 2003 to healthcare heroes for their courageous fight against Sars.

Service Excellence & Commitment to Care

The COVID-19 Radiology Team at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital made a significant impact in managing the health crisis on the frontline. Despite facing many uncertainties while combating the virus, the team worked tirelessly to prepare facilities, including fever tents, interventional radiology, and isolation wards, to screen suspected and confirmed COVID-19 cases. In addition to their regular workload, the team had to provide other diagnostic imaging services such as ultrasound, MRI, and portable X-rays to all the COVID-19 wards. Radiologists, radiographers, and nurses were segregated into two teams to minimise cross-infection and were on standby around the clock to attend to both pandemic and non-pandemic cases. Some of them chose to stay in the hospital for days, and even weeks, without seeing their families. The team also extended their support beyond the hospital by setting up and operating community care and medical facilities on short notice. They worked diligently with all parties to ensure that X-ray images could be transmitted quickly for review.

The COVID-19 Dormitory Operations Task Force (DOTF) at JurongHealth Campus (JHC) was established in response to the emergence of large COVID-19 clusters in dormitories across Singapore. Within a day, the group gathered the necessary equipment and supplies and initiated operations in five dormitories. Managing clinical records for infected patients within the dormitories posed a challenge, but the group resolved this by configuring the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system used in Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and Jurong Community Hospital for use in the dormitories. This adjustment allowed the group to provide clinical care smoothly to their patients. A young migrant worker at one of the dormitories had a complex hematological condition and needed hospitalisation. Upon his return to the dormitory, he still required specialty care, which presented a challenge. Fortunately, the orthopedic surgeons at the dormitory's medical post were able to conduct blood tests and weekly reviews, sending the results back to the hospital. Medications were dispensed by the hospital's pharmacy and delivered to the dormitory. This approach ensured that his condition remained in remission during his stay.

Healthcare Humanity Awards 2020

Nurse Clinician Ranjit Kaur always tries to lift the spirits of those around her, lending a hand to colleagues who need help and attending to patients beyond her working hours. To her teammates, she is someone to count on. To the terminally-ill, she is a source of strength and comfort. To patients who are receiving post-discharge support, she is trusted like a friend. Ranjit has also been contributing outside her nursing profession. She is a regular volunteer on a PAP Home Visit Team, and has been on overseas missions to help victims of natural disasters. Having rendered medical assistance to tsunami and flood victims in Aceh and Orissa, Ranjit has inspired many to rally to the aid of those in need.

Service Excellence & Commitment to Care

During this pandemic, Principal Enrolled Nurse Norhashimah Binte Hashim took care of COVID-19 patients in the ward. Despite the challenges, she was touched by the positive attitude of many migrant workers. Together with friends and family members, she initiated a donation drive and gave out dates, snacks and prayer mats during Ramadan. Norhashimah also has a heart for children deprived of basic necessities. Since 2013, she has made many overseas trips on her own to help the less fortunate. Noting the plight of poor village children in Cambodia and Indonesia, she spearheaded many campaigns to improve their lives. This includes teaching them good hygiene and how to speak basic English.

Service Excellence & Commitment to Care

Senior Staff Nurse Kamala D/O Velu works as a Case Manager in our Emergency Department and holds frequent discussions with clinicians to prepare patients for discharge. She conducts comprehensive assessments of the patient's health, and also coordinates multiple aspects of care with caregivers and healthcare professionals like physiotherapists, pharmacists and medical social workers. Having begun volunteering in secondary school, Kamala dedicates a huge part of her life outside of work to caring for those in her community. She has inspired 20 nursing colleagues to volunteer their time at fundraising and social events at several nursing homes. In addition, she trains pre-school teachers in first aid for children and infants, and also contributes to health screenings held at temples to benefit the needy.

Healthcare Humanity Awards 2019

Assistant Nurse Clinician Maznah Marmin was one of the ten award recipients to receive the Honourable Mention at the Healthcare Humanity Award 2019 and is the first in JurongHealth Campus to receive this Honourable Mention. Apart from her role as a specialty care nurse at NTFGH Neurology, ANC Maznah is an active volunteer who has assisted villagers in Kelantan contain the spread of malaria. In March 2018, ANC Maznah travelled to Bangladesh to provide medical relief to Rohingya refugees as part of the Muslim Healthcare Professionals Association. She does us proud and we continue to be inspired by her acts of service to humanity.

Nurse Clinician Guat Hoon is one of our pioneer staff who has been with us since our early days. Donning hard hat and safety boots, she was heavily involved in setting up and commissioning our Emergency Department at NTFGH to ensure that the area was operationally ready and safe for receiving patients. Aside from her nursing duties, she was also tasked to lead the Decontamination Unit, which involved drafting policies, workflow processes, and creating a training curriculum to equip over 300 hospital staff with the skills to manage the decontamination process in response to a civil emergency. With over 20 years of experience in the ED, she describes her career in three words – challenging, interesting, and fulfilling! Even outside of work, she is steadfast in her belief to save lives and puts her nursing skills to good use by volunteering as a first aider at medical mission trips and marathon events.

Healthcare Humanity Awards 2017

Advanced Practice Nurse Clarice Wee has been looking after critically ill patients since she started her nursing career in 2007. She ensures that her patients receive the care that they need in their vulnerable moments and offers comfort to their families. Her parents were initially apprehensive about her career choice, worried that nursing was a tough job and that she'd be cleaning patients up most of the time. But 10 years on, APN Clarice is still in the ICU and she has never looked back. We are proud of Clarice for leading by example!

Service Excellence & Commitment to Care
Healthcare Humanity Awards 2016

Our Senior Enrolled Nurse, June Ng, was one of the 101 healthcare heroes honoured at the HHA 2016. With over three decades of nursing experience, SEN June has seen the spectrum of human emotions - hope, suffering, triumph and loss. Despite the demands of her day-to-day duties, she took on responsibilities beyond her nursing scope of work to help set up and commission the new Endoscopy Centre at NTFGH. Beyond the hospital, SEN June regularly participates in JurongHealth's community outreach activities and goes on voluntary mission trips every year. Her resilience and dedication to provide quality care to her patients those in need are indeed inspiring.

Service Excellence & Commitment to Care
Healthcare Humanity Awards 2015

The HHA 2015 honoured 62 recipients, one of which was our Principal Enrolled Nurse, Jasmine Goh, who has served as a nurse for more than 30 years. Ms Goh is held in high regard by her colleagues and patients. She takes great pride in her work, often going the extra mile for those who require her assistance. On more than one occasion, Ms Goh has devoted her personal time to help patients in need change their wound dressings on a daily basis. The patients' families were very grateful to her and have continued to keep in touch with her. A nurse for over 30 years, Ms Goh uses her expertise to volunteer her services at community outreach programmes. In 2011, she received a long service award for her service to the community.

    COVID-19 Awards - Exemplary Leader Award

    Dr Suresh took over as the Head of the Department (HOD) of Medicine in Jan 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic began. The department received the second highest number of COVID-19 patients in the country. 

    Faced with an unprecedented crisis, he led from the frontline and ensured that everyone was regularly updated and supported, and that the morale and enthusiasm were maintained. 

    He managed the internal deployment of manpower in response to rapidly changing workflows and rise in the number of COVID cases, and also supported the other departments like Emergency Department (ED) and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the operations at Big Box CCF and dormitories as one coordinated team. Improvements in acute and general medicine workflows championed by Dr Suresh have resulted in safer care for patients, reduced burnout among doctors and improved performance in areas such as re-admissions, case mix index and undergraduate teaching scores.

    He was instrumental in setting up ED-liaison teams and HOT clinics which enabled better collaboration with ED. Dr Suresh has received multiple awards for service quality and education and wrote an acute medicine handbook for use by the on-call doctors at night. A much-respected leader, Dr Suresh has been praised by his staff for 'being on the ground and approachable'.

    Congratulations to Dr Suresh for winning the Exemplary Leader Award at the COVID Public Sector Transformation Awards 2022!

    Mary Jane always lends a listening ear and forges friendships with her patients. She once helped a patient, who was despondent about her divorce while concurrently dealing with a terminal illness, to focus on the positive things in her life. Eventually, they became friends and even celebrated Christmas together.

    Other than her strong ability to empathise with her patients, Mary Jane was also recognised by Ng Teng Fong General Hospital as the "Best Clinical Instructor/Preceptor" for nursing students. Congratulations to Senior Staff Nurse Mary Jane on receiving the Exemplary Service Excellence Award 2020!
