Since early April, our clinicians, nurses, allied health professionals, administrative and ancillary staff, have started providing medical support and swabbing for COVID-19 in dormitories as part of a national effort to care for our foreign workers.
Our teams from NUHS - comprising National University Hospital, Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, Alexandra Hospital, National University Polyclinics, National University Centre for Oral Health, Singapore and our Regional Health System Office - have been planning, collaborating and stepping up training to support the Dorm operations in the West.
In anticipation of an increasing number of Covid-19 cases in the dormitories, we are heartened by the encouraging response that we received when we rallied for more staff volunteers to sustain these medical and mobile swabbing operations in spite of the need to manage the challenging situation in our Hospitals and Polyclinics.
Apart from playing an active role to contain the outbreaks, our healthcare colleagues are out in full force to reassure our foreign workers that we are standing by them in their time of need as they play an important role in building Singapore.
NUHS will continue to care for our workers.
