The reorganisation of the six Regional Health Systems into 3, announced by MOH in January this year, is taking place as scheduled. The 19 polyclinics operating under the different RHSes will be merged into 3 from October. The 850 staff affected by the reorganisation have also been informed. The 3 new RHSes will be able to consolidate resources and provide more comprehensive care for patients, and patient care would not be affected by the reorganisation. Other aspects of the reorganisation are on track for completion by early 2018.
