NDC Department Of Medical Services (D.O.M.S.)

The D.O.M.S. is primarily a civilian based government entity that handles all medical related matters. Such as research of new treatments and medications, to distributing medical services and applying new treatments through their services. As mentioned, it is almost entirely a civilian organization of doctors, physicians, surgeons, researchers, and scientists. However, medics in the military are required to take D.O.M.S. personnel training courses and enlisted as first responder service personnel similar to a national guard unit.

In mid YE 42, it was absorbed by the NDC Department of Public Services.

Role of The DoMS

The Department of Medical Services is responsible for project managing any major development within NDC borders. This includes things such as, but not limited to:

  • Medical Studies
  • Development of New Pharmaceuticals
  • Providing medically related services, products, equipment, and treatments
  • Ensuring Health Standards Are Upheld
  • Monitoring The Health of The Populace
  • Training Medical Personnel

The DoMS is also the governmental body that the B.R.R.F. reports any major accidents or incidents, for example, the sudden rise in infection rates for a disease, or treating hazardous biological compounds that threaten the populace.

Power of the DoMS

As a government body, the DoMS has a considerable amount of power, though that power is quite limited. The DoMS has the power to take control of any medical project in the entirety of NDC's borders, though they must have a valid reason for taking control, For example if an epidemic plagues a city district. If they take control of a potential infection site and their reasoning is not backed up with evidence, the central government can order the DoMS to hand the job site back over.

Other powers of the DoMS include the ability to have infection sites placed on a black site list, making it a quarantine zone, meaning only high ranking officials and the workers on the site are permitted to know of its existence with proper protection. The central government can, however, overturn the DoMS's decision and remove the site from the black site list, making it public knowledge.

DoMS Workers

Employees of the DoE are not just limited to doctors. The DoE also employs researchers, scientists, therapists, psychologists, medical engineers, project managers, Secretaries and many other miscellaneous jobs needed to ensure that the department stays afloat. However, the primary employee of the DoMS are doctors and scientists, tasked with providing quality medical care, developing new advances in medicine, and monitoring the health of the NDC's people.
