Quality Day celebrates quality and service excellence in our hospitals, clinics and Regional Health System (RHS). Organised by Group Quality and Clinical Governance (GQCG), the event serves as a strategic platform for the sharing of knowledge and best practices among our institutions and global organisations.
By regularly reviewing our improvement and innovation efforts, we hope to remain as one of the best healthcare providers in the world.
