  • PDO representative (current PDO staff) along with a copy of pensioner’s national ID card or passport.

3. Medical Services

PDO harmonised its in-house primary healthcare services to include all levels of staff and their eligible dependants. We also support our retirees and their spouses. Further improvements have been made by introducing in-house secondary healthcare in gynaecology, heart, and endocrine/diabetic specialties under the care of experienced external consultants. In addition to the available services, PDO has also provided further primary healthcare investigation support at private health care facilities, which may be requested by a PDO doctor or specialists at a government hospital. These are:

  • Radiological investigations(x-ray,ultrasound,CTscans, mammography, MRI) diagnostic
  • Proctoscopy/ sigmoidoscopy/colonoscopy evaluation in private hospital
  • To establish the diagnosis of eye conditions, we also support initial eye investigations at PDO-affiliated private eye clinics. Those needing definitive treatment/surgery will be referred to government hospitals.

PDO’s in-house heart clinic is equipped with modern TME, ECHO and Holter ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and is being used by 60% of our retirees. Our in-house endocrine, diabetic and eye clinic has also been used by 20-30% of our retirees so far.
