Pharmacists at Singapore public hospitals now see patients


AT THE Singapore General Hospital, pharmacists run a clinic where they teach asthma patients how to use inhalers and take medicine correctly.

Over the years, public hospitals here have been setting up more of such clinics.

All public hospitals here now have at least one pharmacist-run outpatient service which meet the needs of patients with various conditions.

Mind Your Body this Thursday explains what such clinics do and why they are becoming more common.
