NCID Cares, previously known as Patient Care Centre (PCC), is the community arm of NCID within the Infectious Disease Research & Training Office (IDRTO). It is a community space on Level 1 of NCID and comprises a creative zone for patient volunteers to do their handicraft, a large dining area and a recreation zone ("Great Minds") for volunteer-facilitated activities, training and programme events. Works are in place to create an education and exhibition zone for information on infectious diseases.
NCID Cares will take on a larger role in:
- Community engagement through our centre-based care and;
- Public education and community engagement to prepare Singapore and her people for infectious disease outbreaks via greater awareness of infectious diseases and outbreak response.
