Hi, I'm currently seeing a Dr at kkh as a private patient as previously I was only free to see the Dr on Saturdays. Now that I'm more flexible, I would like to switch to being a subsidised patient. Any one has this experience?

I don't mind lah. I don't see why I need to see my current Dr because the previous pregnancy I also went in as subsidised patient do I call the hotline and tell them to just assign me another date instead of my current appointment?

No, if u do that will consider private, u need to go through polyclinic route to get referral letter for subsidies
