THE FIVE-YEAR PLAN FRAMEWORK
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.|
|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 5 YEARS
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.
