To aid our primary care partners in providing seamless care for their patients, we offer General Practitioners (GPs) the Direct Access (for Outpatient care) and Direct Admission (for Inpatient care) programmes.


Direct Access

The NUH Direct Access Programme provides General Practitioners (GP) with a fast and convenient means to book appointments for their patients with urgent but medically stable conditions. Through this programme, GPs will be able to make the Outpatient appointment for their patients to see our Specialist on the same day or within the shortest possible time (usually within 7 working days). 


Benefits of Direct Access

  • Easy to use / convenient
  • Patients save on their A&E fees
  • Shorter waiting time for appointment
  • Fast track admission (if required)



Direct Admission

NUH offers the option of Direct Admission to General Practitioners (GPs) to enable them to secure fast track admission to our wards for their patients with urgent but stable medical conditions, without going through the usual A&E process.


Patients who are referred by GPs for direct admission will still be given the choice of the class of ward, subject to availability of beds. 


Benefits of Direct Admission

  • Patients save on their A&E fees
  • Shorter waiting time for admission


Referral to our care is not only made easy for our GPs, patients will also benefit from the shorter wait and cost savings the programmes bring.
