The SingHealth Duke-NUS Lung Centre was established to provide multidisciplinary and seamless care, as well as a single referral channel for all thoracic conditions.


The Lung Centre is focused on delivering quality clinical care in the areas of airway diseases, complex lung diseases, pulmonary infections and thoracic oncology. This is enabled by strong support from thoracic support services, including diagnostic radiology, thoracic pathology, anaesthesiology and allied health.

The Centre is helmed by the following specialties:

  • Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine
  • Thoracic Surgery
  • Medical Oncology
  • Radiation Oncology

The Centre forms a unique platform for the collaborative work of a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to meet the needs of the patient throughout the disease trajectory. Cases are discussed at multidisciplinary meetings, where the team of specialists is experienced in the assessment and management of complex lung diseases and tumours.

Besides providing clinical services to the local population, it is also a regional referral centre and a centre for clinical research.

The Centre is also actively involved in education and research, and participates in multicentre trials to provide patients with more therapeutic options and enhance medical knowledge.
