Temporary Reduction in Pre-Enlistment Medical Screening in Jul 2020

Pre-enlistment medical screening is an essential step before you enlist for National Service. In line with Phase Two of the Government’s three-phased approach to resume activities safely and to ensure safe management at our premises for the safety of our pre-enlistees, CMPB will continue to reduce the daily number of pre-enlistment medical screening appointments in Jul 2020.

You will receive a notification from CMPB if your upcoming appointment has been rescheduled. Please do not turn up on your original appointment date. From 29 Jun 2020 onwards, log on to the NS Portal for your new appointment details. Your enlistment will not be affected by this change.

If you have an upcoming appointment and you have not received any notification, please continue with your appointment at CMPB. When commuting to CMPB, please adhere to the national guidelines. Wear a mask at all times and keep a safe distance of at least 1 metre from others, even in open spaces. Stay safe.

During your online pre-enlistment documentation, you will be prompted to book a medical screening appointment. The screening will determine your medical fitness, which impacts the type of basic training and vocations you can be assigned to. A psychometric test will also be conducted on the same day. You can only book or amend your first medical screening during the National Service registration online exercise. Note that you can only change your appointment date once during this period. If you are unable to change your appointment, please contact us.
