NHS presently adopts a Five-Year Plan Framework when moving into a new district. Across a period of 5 years, NHS conducts Screening and Follow-up in the following sequence:

1st Year Screening + Follow-up Identify residents-in-need within the district (by targeting rental blocks).
2nd Year Screening + Follow-up
3rd Year Follow-up + Education Follow-up with residents-in-need and reconnect them back to the healthcare system.

Engage residents through education and grassroots events.
4th Year Follow-up + Education
5th Year Screening + Follow-up Re-evaluate needs of the district relative to others before deciding the screening plan for the following years.
The Five-Year Plan Framework was established to achieve the following:
1. To delineate the operations of NHS in the district over a medium- to long-term period (five years);
2. To allow districts to be evaluated on a needs-basis, in order to serve residents with the greatest need;
3. To be transparent and maintain a degree of commitment to residents and grassroots in a particular district.


After the 5th Year, NHS will re-evaluate the needs of a particular district based on a standardised evaluation rubric which takes into account several factors such as the number of follow-up cases remaining and the health-seeking behaviour of residents.

Thereafter, a revised plan will be crafted based on the needs of the residents in the particular district. This plan will delineate the operations of NHS in the district after the first 5 years.
