Awards are for patients, caregivers

The Singapore Health Inspirational Patient and Caregiver Awards was launched in 2010 to pay tribute to patients and caregivers who have shown courage, resilience and patience.

It is organised by the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre.

Two new categories were introduced this year:

  • Inspirational Patient Volunteers Award, which acknowledges patients who have improved the lives of other patients through volunteering.
  • Inspirational Clinical Trial Patients Award, which acknowledges patients who have volunteered for clinical trials and studies to help bring about better treatment options for others.

This year's awards were given out to 23 patients and nine caregivers. Each winner received a plaque and $250 in gift vouchers.
