About the Scheme

PHPC Logo 

To address the growing number of public health threats such as haze, and influenza pandemic, the Pandemic Preparedness Clinics (PPC) and the Haze Subsidy Scheme will be rebranded as the Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPC) scheme to better manage these threats in the primary care setting.   

Roles of PHPC

 As a PHPC, your clinic will be responsible to perform one or more of the following roles when activated during public health emergencies:
- Dispense medicals from the national stockpile (e.g. Tamiflu, antibiotics)
- Administer vaccinations from the national stockpile (e.g. flu vaccines)
- Provide subsidised treatment 
 

MOH Support  

Having a unified scheme allows us to better identify our GP partners and provide greater support in such situations. Logistical support (i.e. personal protective equipment and prophylaxis) will be provided to participating clinics to ensure that the doctors and clinic staff are adequately protected in times of public health emergencies. Similarly, priority for medication and vaccine supply from national stockpile will be given to PHPCs in such situations. During peacetime, training will be made available to the PHPCs.  

Implementation  

PHPCs will also be promptly notified of the activation and informed of their roles for that particular activation via SMS and/ or email at least 24 hours before the implementation of the scheme.
