It is 6.30pm on Wednesday and Dr Goh Wei Leong has just seen the last of his patients at Manhattan Medical Centre, the general health clinic he has been operating in Chinatown for the last three decades.

A nurse, one of several who have been in his employ for more than 20 years, comes in bearing two pieces of homemade carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. He helps himself to one with gusto.

“This is also from a patient,” he says with a grin.

Facing the future bravely – together
