Navigating crowds, enduring long commutes and even longer wait times at the treatment center, are some challenges that many patients face to receive treatment.

However, since the launch of the NCCS Home Care programme in July 2020, eligible patients, whose treatment can be administered safely independently (i.e. subcutaneous or intramuscular injections) are able to receive their cancer treatment in the comfort of their own homes. These home visits are arranged by the various doctors, pharmacists and clinic staff that make up their healthcare team. To-date, over 300 patients have enrolled in the programme.

Key benefits include:
- Save on time and travelling expenses
- Treatment can be arranged at patients and caregivers' convenience
- Patients may feel more at ease when treatment is administered in familiar home environment

Based on a survey conducted in 2021, 98.8% of patients indicated they were either satisfied or very satisfied with the service; and 75% of them preferred receiving their treatment at home as compared to receiving it in the hospital.

With this positive feedback, we hope to continue and extend this programme to more cancer patients.

As the programme is being supported solely through philanthropic funds from generous donors, your gift is crucial to help keep this programme going, to benefit more patients. Your contribution will go towards the NCCS Cancer Fund for the NCCS Home Care programme.

Thank you for helping to improve cancer care!

About the Charity

Someone in Singapore is diagnosed with cancer every hour. For many, a cancer diagnosis is an emotional and difficult time. The NCCS Cancer Fund (NCCSCF) helps support the fight against cancer by providing financial assistance for needy patients, ensuring sufficient funding for NCCS scientists and clinicians to continue their work in cancer research and promotes cancer education for healthcare professionals and the general public.

NCCS helps over 26,000 cancer patients each year. From the moment they are diagnosed and throughout their treatment we are with them, providing the very best care, by the best people, in the best place.
