Don't believe your GPksl wrote:My GP here in Singapore tells me the pay is not good in Singapore at all for GP's! UK doctor's earn a great deal more! I also think this Country doesn't have any shortage of doctors and would probably take them from Chinese speaking countries if needed. Just my 2 cents.
Well, in Singapore, GPs in private practice make money, money enough for them to pay upto 400$ a day for locums ..
But, coming from other places, there is the need to do time in Public hospitals and work up to getting Full Registration, at the most, Foreign Grads are expected to put up 3 years or so before moving from T-Reg/C-Reg to Full Reg
Well, most of the doctors in govt sector are from Asian countries and lower pay .. and KSL, well, there is a shortage of doctors in the hospitals, short enough for Singaporean- overseas graduates to be offered a one-off payment of 20,000 S$ to 50,000 S$ to relocate back to Singapore
