On 3 April 2020, the government announced the implementation of an elevated set of safe distancing measures as a circuit breaker to pre-empt the trend of increasing local transmission of COVID-19.

At Singapore Cancer Society (SCS), the health and safety of everyone is of paramount importance. We seek your kind understanding that all of our premises, including our main office at 15 Enggor Street, SCS Clinic @ Bishan, SCS Cancer Rehabillitation Centre, and our SCS Satellite Centres at National University Cancer Institute, Singapore (NCIS) and National Cancer Centre Singapore will be closed during this period.

As the largest cancer advocacy and support organisation in Singapore, we understand that the cancer journey can be very difficult. Your health and well-being is our utmost concern and while our premises may be closed, we will still be doing our level best to extend our support to you.

EXTENDING OUR CARE FOR YOU

Your health and well-being is important to us and we would like to extend our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused. In the meantime:

  1. Stay at home as much as possible
  2. Avoid visiting others, even extended family, especially the elderly and vulnerable
