In a text message sent out by MOH, they said:

“Due to rising Covid-19 cases, we urgently require manpower to support the ramp-up of Covid-19 operations.”

The SHC was first started up to provide support for healthcare professionals in operational needs relating to the pandemic as well as community care.

Individuals regardless of their level of experience in healthcare are welcomed by the SHC and those that are selected would be given training before they are deployed out in their roles.

There will also be contract positions offered to individuals and individuals who take up these positions would be given a salary.

Some of the roles required of these contract positions are:

  • Management of those tested positive in hospitals and community care facilities
  • Backfill manpower in business-as-usual settings

These roles would be available from February 2022.

As part of the process for MOH to select who they want to hire, applicants might have to go for a briefing session.

There are also certain roles which require the individual to have healthcare training previously and some roles will require the individual to hold a valid practising certificate from the relevant professional boards.
