I mention in an earlier post my mum went to the doctor. On the last day of the Lunar New Year, which is the Chap Goh Mei, while my mum is at the PPH Community Centre event, as I gave my handphone number to the clinic, the clinic called me up and inform me that the report is out. As the event at PPH Community Centre, I was told it was from 9am to 12pm. The clinic closed at 12.30pm and last registration is at 11.30am, so I ask the staff if it is ok to go on another day. The staff replied ok. It so happen the event ends early, at 10 plus, so after going back home, bringing my mum IC, Pioneer Generation Card, etc, we walk to the clinic.
The doctor review the report. I ask the doctor if my mum needs to take a lot of medicine, as she might be frighten if she see a lot of medicine. As my mum cholesterol is high, the doctor said monitor first, ask her not to take oily foods, so didn't give her medicine on high cholesterol. She was given antibiotics which she has to complete the whole course and also Zynor which she has to take once a time every morning.
As the doctor is a general practitioner, my mum case, he can't do anything about it. He wanted to refer my mum case to the specialist. I didn't take the letter as I wanted to ask for opinion.
The next day, which is a Sunday, usually every Sunday morning, I will go for my Zumba session at my neighbourhood there, there a lady who will be there, she's a Pioneer Generation Ambassador, so I went up to ask her, if my mum goes to see the specialist, will she gets any subsidy, she mention, if go to the Polyclinic and get a referral letter from the doctor, the subsidy, will be more. If from private doctor, there is subsidy, but will be lesser.
So I enquiry at the Polyclinic, whether if I could bring my mum medical report from the private doctor and get a referral letter on behalf of my mum. Was told have to bring my mum to see the doctor.
