The Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) has partnered BookDoc -- an online healthcare platform -- to provide Singaporeans with more access to cancer-related information and services.

The public can now use BookDoc's mobile app or website to search for free cancer screening services such as Pap smear and mammogram at a SCS centre closest to their homes.

They can also use the app or website to book appointments for themselves or their loved ones, as well as get directions to the nearest SCS centres.

"SCS is glad to have a new partner to support our efforts in battling cancer.This partnership with BookDoc will further aid us in reaching out to more people. Early detection of cancer and immediate treatment greatly favour the chances of recovery," said Chief Executive Officer of SCS, Albert Ching.

The BookDoc app is available for download for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.  

Established in 1964, SCS is a self-funded voluntary welfare organisation which provides patient care services to needy cancer patients through its welfare, hospice home care, cancer treatment subsidy and rehabilitation support programmes. The organisation also provides free cancer screening services and promotes cancer awareness and prevention through its public education and community outreach programmes.
