How do you gain the trust of others and what keeps you going at work?

We get Ms Claire Chua and Mr Josh Lim from our Corporate Services team to share with us.

“The most rewarding part of my job is receiving appreciation from my clients spurs me on and constantly reminds me that I am supporting them well. I like to be proactive and knowledgeable so my clients can trust and rely on me. Many times, they introduce clients to me and it makes the acquisition process easier.” – Claire Chua

“I read up to keep myself updated with the latest medical news and equip myself with relevant knowledge. This helped me to offer professional advice to my clients as a trusted healthcare consultant. I feel affirmed when my clients request for me to continue as their account manager. It encourages me, giving me the confidence that I am on the right track.” – Josh Lim

Young children, before the age of two, get as many as eight to 10 colds a year.

“This is not a sign of a weak immune system but simply that the growing child is being exposed to many viruses,” advises Dr Wong Wei Mon, Senior Family Physician, Raffles Medical – Raffles Holland V.

Dr Wong adds that though cold medications offer relieve symptoms; they do not provide a cure or shorten the duration of the common cold.

“Reading and sharing stories can help children learn the difference between “real” and “make believe,” shares Dr Chitra Ramalingam, Specialist in Paediatric Medicine & Consultant, Raffles Children Centre.

👶👦👧👩‍⚕️ How can one get children to loosen themselves up when they are visiting their doctors? Dr Chitra Ramalingam, Specialist in Paediatric Medicine & Consultant, Raffles Childeren's Centre, shares her way.

"I enjoy being around children. I talk to the child about their favourite games and characters. I give them my full attention and play simple games and examine them as a part of the game. I get to listen to their chatter and play their games. I enjoy working in partnership with parents and family in helping the child. Paediatrics is an interesting field as we deal from new born to teenagers and young adult each presenting with completely different medical problems." (more…)

may initially not have considered, such as adoption or child-free living,” shares Dr Sheila Loh, Specialist in Obstetrics and Gynaecology & Consultant, Raffles Fertility Centre and Raffles Women’s Centre. (more…)
