Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to request for my own medical report?
Applying to consent to release medical records is necessary because of patient privacy, confidentiality, and compliance with legal regulations. Medical records contain sensitive and personal information about a patient's health, medical history, and treatment details. Releasing such information without proper consent could lead to breaches of privacy and compromise the confidentiality of the patient's data.
Requiring patients to apply for the release of medical records ensures that they are fully informed about the process. By signing the consent form, patients acknowledge that they understand what information will be shared, to whom it will be disclosed, and for what purpose.
How do I prevent unauthorised access?
Without the formal application of consent, we will never disclose any information to your employer or any third-party agency. Requiring a formal application or consent helps prevent unauthorised access to your medical records. It ensures that only authorised individuals, such as the patient or their authorised representatives, have the right to access the information.
Why does the clinic require such application?
Keeping a record of the consent forms helps the clinic maintain a transparent and accountable system for managing medical records requests. It ensures that all requests are legitimate, properly documented, and handled appropriately.
Requiring consent protects the clinic from potential liability issues and malpractice claims. It demonstrates our committment to take the necessary steps to comply with regulations and respect patient rights.
By obtaining patient consent through a formal application process, we can assure patients that we act ethically and legally while respecting patient autonomy and privacy. This process is necessary to foster trust between the patient and the clinic, as patients are more confident that their sensitive medical information will be handled with care and confidentiality.
Why the need for medical confidentiality?
According to the SMC Ethical Code and Ethical Guidelines 2016, patients have a right to expect that any information provided by doctor in the context of clinical care be kept confidential, unless there are very good reasons for sharing the information.
The clinic will maintain medical confidentiality unless patients consent for specific disclosure to other parties, and will not disclose anything more than is necessary in the context of the case.
Why must I pay for a medical report?
The doctor needs to review the patient's full medical records to prepare the report with the information as required. The fee levied for providing the medical report covers the clinic's administrative costs and the doctor's professional input. The medical consultation bill does not include the cost of medical reports.
This is a standard practice across all the public and private healthcare institutions in Singapore.
What is the difference between medical report and medical memo?
A medical memo is a brief statement from a doctor to state the patient's diagnosis. It contain no explanation of patient's purpose of visit, medical condition and any events/incidents leading to the visit.
A medical report is a factual report of the patient's medical condition based on medical information available to the doctor.
Can the medical report be written in multiple languages?
All medical reports are written in English only.

You can post it by mail to our address: Blk 134, Geylang East Avenue 1, #01-227, Singapore 380134. Alternatively, you can attach all the supporting documents to our email address: email@example.com
