During your visit

Q. What to expect on your visit


For information on general medication use, click here.


A Visitor Registration System has been implemented at KKH.

For clinic appointments, patients are required to scan their appointment card or identity documents to access the gantries. Persons accompanying patients are encouraged to arrive 30 mins before the appointment time to register at the kiosks or register in advance on KKH’s website before accessing the gantries by scanning their identity documents.

For more info and FAQs on Visitor Registration, click here*.


Q. Which Doctor will I See?

A. Subsidised patients will receive team-based care led by an assigned specialist. Non-subsidised patients will receive team-based care led by their choice of specialist. Please be assured that patients receive the same quality of care regardless of their subsidy status.

Q. How long will my visit take?

A. The time for your visit may take an hour or up to three hours. This is because patients ahead of you may have complex conditions and/or if doctors are called to attend to emergencies in the operating theatres or wards. You may have to wait for the results of your scans or tests to facilitate further medical advice. 

Q. What are the Consultation Fees?

A. You can refer to the list of consultation fees here*.


Q: If I don’t want to queue after I’ve seen the doctor, can I get my medication delivered to me?
