Patients, Caregivers & Primary Care Partners

At KKH, we put our patients first! They are at the heart of all we do.

Their caregivers are not forgotten. We feel that it is important to accommodate the family as well.

We also recognise that a better GP-KKH integration of services will ultimately lead to better patient health outcomes.
