"It is important to focus on and shift resources to primary care so that we can do more for patients in the community.   Care integration means building bridges between polyclinics and specialists, social care partners, general practitioners (GPs), and most important of all, patients; so that together we can manage patients more holistically and in a more coordinated manner, especially those with complex issues.

The connectedness also brings us closer to one another and forges greater mutual understanding so that we can create a seamless patient care journey.”
