The special procedure through which out-of-service healthcare professional may return to active service, has been unveiled.

Vice President Hussain Mohamed Latheef launched the special procedure during a ceremony held at the Ministry of Health on Wednesday.

The special procedure will focus on reintegrating out-of-service healthcare experts into active service, through the wage employment process.

Said procedure modernizes the reintegration process and will be different from traditional employment procedures.

Assisting healthcare professionals who have been out of work, back into the service, is a key component of President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu’s “Hafthaa 14” roadmap.

The initiative is a collaboration between the health ministry and the Civil Service Commission (CSC).

The procedure allows the formation of a registered poll of out-of-service health experts, who can be swiftly reintegrated into the workforce under the wage employment policy, based on their educational qualifications, experiences and skillset.

This is different from the traditional employment procedures, which can be time-consuming.

The President’s Office revealed that the procedure facilitates the return of health professionals to active service where their expertise can enhance the existing healthcare system.

The process carries the purpose of designing a primary healthcare service and providing uninterrupted services to the public.

In addition to this, the process allows the recruitment of qualified retired healthcare workers into administrative positions, even if they are not registered in the registry pool.

The government earlier in January announced an initiative to assist nurses and other health professionals out of work, to return.

Muizzu reached the decision to formulate a special policy to facilitate the return of nurses and other health workers who have not been working due to various reasons, following recommendation of his Cabinet of Ministers. The decision was based upon extensive deliberations on a paper submitted by the Ministry of Health.

With this initiative, the return of nurses and other health professionals to the service will be facilitated, based on available positions.

This will be done under a specific program allowing for a quick recruitment procedure as opposed to the general policy of offering employment to employees.

Muizzu also decided to allow those who desire to work less than eight hours a day, to do so within the established standards of the civil service by setting a salary based on their working hours.

Further, it was decided to extend assistance to individuals above 55 years of age and those retired who are not registered in the registry set up, to facilitate the recruitment of out-of-service healthcare workers who are qualified in terms of health, education, experience, skill, and availability of positions in the administrative structure.
