Queenstown Polyclinic Hot
Queenstown Polyclinic started as a combined clinic providing outpatient, maternal and child health care. In the late 1980s, these services were merged to form the polyclinic and dental clinic.

Slow. That's the best word to describe the Queenstown polyclicnic. Registration is fast and does not take up much time because the jam begins while waiting to see the doctor. The polyclinic has a fair bit of doctors but because of the huge crowd that are usually older in age demographics, waiting time is very long and can go past 30 minutes. Hence, I suggest bringing along a book or a laptop to do your work if you are going to visit the polyclinic.
Not sure if it's just me, but I find the polyclinic doctors to be slightly rude and impatient as compared to GPs. They give me the feeling that they just want to get things over and done with and have no real concern for you, which I don't think is very nice. After seeing the doctor, be prepared for another long queue for medicine dispensation and payment. Unless really necessary, I usually don't queue for medicine but instead try to go to pharmacies to purchase them instead. A quick tip for payment wise is to use the automated payment machines by the staircase so you don't have to wait in line again.
Queenstown Polyclinic is quite far from the Queenstown MRT so one will need to take a bus. Apart from that and the slow service, the cheap consultation fees are the only thing that keep me going back, with payment being less than $7 each time.
