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:
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 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.
