Manager / Assistant Manager (Primary Care)

Agency: Ministry of Health
Job no.: 515706
Work type: Permanent/Contract
Location: Singapore
Categories:Healthcare, Policy Formulation

The Ministry of Health’s (MOH) vision is to champion a healthy nation with our people – to live well, live long and with peace of mind. As an open country constantly exposed to an interconnected world, Singapore faces complex issues in public healthcare. MOH constantly grapples with new challenges brought on by an increasingly globalised world, a rapidly ageing population and rising expectations. MOH’s responses to these challenges include preventing and managing the outbreak of diseases such as SARS and Influenza A (H1N1), designing a healthcare system that delivers care in an integrated and effective manner, growing the capacity and capabilities within the sector, and managing healthcare inflation.

As an MOH officer, you will be involved in formulating and implementing policies that guide Singapore’s healthcare ecosystem. You will work alongside a team with varied skills and backgrounds, but with the common goals of (i) promoting good health and reducing illnesses; (ii) ensuring that Singaporeans have access to good and affordable healthcare; and (iii) pursuing medical excellence. Your work will have far-reaching impact on the health and lives of Singaporeans.


You will play a vital role to develop and review policies that will enhance the private primary care sector to respond to public health threats in Singapore, while addressing the growing demand for chronic care.  As part of your role, you will develop Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPC) and Haze Subsidy Schemes (HSS), and support primary care emergency preparedness and response and support IT related initiatives to ensure a better IT system and safe networking environment in primary care.  You will also provide secretariat support for the Primary Care Master plan Implementation Committee (PCMIC).
