National University Health System has been named one of The Straits Times' "Best Employers in Singapore 2022" for providing employees with flexible working arrangements that help them balance work, family and personal responsibilities, while maintaining career development opportunities.
The article featured Ms Liew Ming Lee, Senior Staff Nurse, National University Polyclinics, who left nursing in 2015 but re-joined National University Polyclinics in 2019 as an admin staff. Ms Liew's calling to return to nursing came when she was posted to support at the Swab Isolation Facilities during the COVID-19 outbreak. Being a registered nurse, she felt that she should be practising and putting to use her licence and knowledge. Ms Liew's supervisors supported her decision and prepared her for the transition to return to clinical practice by sending her for relevant courses and in-house trainings. Ms Liew is currently a Care Manager at Bukit Panjang Polyclinic. She works within a medical team that attends to patients with chronic diseases.
Ms Jancy Mathews, Chief Nurse, National University Polyclinics, said that National University Polyclinics hopes that all employees will be able to reach their full potential and that they are supportive of Ms Liew to return to the clinical position.
The article also featured Ms Jamie Tan, a staff nurse with National University Hospital's Khoo Teck Puat-National University Children's Medical Institute, who pursued a career in events management after her nursing diploma, but decided to sign up as an nursing volunteer at the Tuas South Community Care Facility during the COVID-19 pandemic. With support from her nursing lead at Community Care Facility, Ms Tan has joined National University Hospital's Khoo Teck Puat-National University Children's Medical Institute for two years, enthusiastically involved in the care of young patients.
