the other jerks ...? Sorry, but you sound like a jerk yourself. Kudos to that doctor for keeping his professional calm with patients like you.

Singapore welcomes all talented foreigners with wide open arms. It's a condition called xenophilia. You should ask for at least 100k gbp with benefits matching what you get in UK.

my advice to you, if you want to work in here then ask for more pay than what you received in uk.

there won't be any language barrier because all hospitals have their own interpreter.

and also prepare yourself to receive a lot of unreasonable complains.

Dear friends..........I would curious about how much a psychiatrist or child psychiatrist would be able to make in singapore. May it be at hospital or in private practice? I heart sums from about S$300,000 to S$500,000 a year? Considering the shortage of psychiatrists in Singapore is it one of the better paid specialties? Thanks.

As a former medic of SAF, I can attest to the fact that all the doctors I have come across has no sympathy or consideration towards patients. After reading this forum, i wonder if the main reason was overwork. But since they hate working with sick people so much, i will advise them to find a job in another industry for the sake of themselves and the patients.

Default Psychiatrists

I wonder how much a psychiatrist in private practice could make in Singapore? Real estates are quite high in the city. Therefore making a good and respectable living would necessitate some S$300k - S$500k a year. Supposed doing 2000 hours of work it would mean to calculate an hourly rate of about S$300 to net about S$300k a year after overhead etc.
Anyone informed in this issues?
