Public Health Preparedness Clinic (PHPC)

About


The Public Health Preparedness Clinic (PHPC) scheme consolidates the primary care clinic response to public health emergencies such as influenza pandemic, haze and anthrax outbreak into a single scheme for better management. The Haze Subsidy Scheme (HSS) has also been subsumed under the PHPC scheme. While the specific roles of the PHPC may differ in different threats, the general function of the PHPC remains the same, which is to serve the primary healthcare needs of Singaporeans in times of national need.     

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 medications (e.g. Tamiflu, antibiotics)                              
- Administer vaccinations (e.g. flu vaccines)                               
- Provide subsidised treatment (e.g. under the HSS)                       

MOH Support
Logistical support (i.e. personal protective equipment and prophylaxis for staff) 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 pharmaceuticals and vaccine supply from the national stockpile will be given to PHPCs in such situations. During peacetime, training will be made available to the PHPCs to help prepare them to be able to perform their roles during public health emergencies.     

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.

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