I will tell patient to F off mild acne need referral for what? Come on la. In the end will get patient early appt with derm la.
Those of us who are Drs will know la. Even the FPs will admit privately. But of course cannot say in front of all the young Drs la.

depends on department and hospital and how many private pat u seeing.
but generally yes although most new contract are limiting the amt they can earn.
some of the gastro AC I knew 10 years back under old scheme got a suprise when their bonus came. that's when their entire year of procedural work got tallied. one guy paid cash for a 5 series.

Can I check if you work in the public sector, either as a consultant in public hospital or as a family physician in ops (after mmed or fellowship), what will your performance rating be if you just choose do clinical work? I e no interest in research/admin/teaching, just come to work, finish your clinic/ward work (i.e ward rounds for specialist) and go home straight after.

I assume you won't progress far and obviously won't be candidate for leadership position or become a Prof for e.g, but you will still get average performance bonus? (I.e b or c grading)

I can't say for hospital cos I don't work there but for ops , u can do pure clinical and meeting requirement is largely based on numbers ( and ok number of complaints). meet requirement , they throw quite good bonus at you. your annual package in ops will suprise many. when I tell my juniors , they go sure or not ... in some cluster like singhealth, u have solo queue , so when u finish u can actually just go home. but when u actually start to run clinic u dun wish to do pure clinical la. 45 patient a day X 5.5 is 250 patient a week. by Thu and Friday shag liao. u run out of empathy , this is the 235th patient with poor dm control.. best is have a mix of teaching , do 1 or 2 research project on the side.
