Scope to expand health screening programmes for elderly: Koh Poh Koon






SINGAPORE: The People's Action Party (PAP) candidate for the Punggol East by-election Dr Koh Poh Koon said he plans to set up a wellness centre for the elderly to help senior residents age actively.

He said there is scope to expand health screening and preventive programmes for the elderly in the ward.

Dr Koh told reporters that plans are still in early stages but the centre will be built as part of the new Community Centre, to be located near Rivervale Plaza.

He said fundraising for the new centre has reached 50 per cent.

Dr Koh added that he will push forward on this effort if and when he is elected MP for the area.
