I also understand that smaller gps tend to pay more than large chain groups.

I am currently fm resident looking to leave after residency as I am fed up with all the admin stuff/qip etc. I am happy to work evening, weekends or even night shifts as long as I am paid well given that I am still single, young and little other commitments in life. (In fact I am looking at the possibility of locuming in Ed night shift on top of my daily gp work)
My understanding from my seniors is that ops Drs in mmed eventually earns more than private salaried gp (unless you do asthestics) but it may take some time. However I understand that the higher you go in ops, the more admin crap you have to do, and in general I feel the pt profile in private more straight forward (a lot of work permits/driving licence renewal, health screening, and now covid tests for travel lol)

Would any ops seniors kindly shed light on the pay structure and progression for mmeders in ops?
after m.med annual salary
year 1 22xk
year 2 23xk
year 3 24xk
year 4 promote ac 27xk
year 5 28xk
year 6 dunno yet.

Rp pay is 7820 per month in the Sponsoring institution that I am working in. Bonus including aws is around 3 mths.
Gdfm is 500 extra per mth. This is what I was offered (not sure if they lowballed me) but I declined as I think can get more in private chain.

Agree with all your OPS points.

Pte cases more simple and acute not always true. But complicated sometimes patient say cannot afford investigations and treatment have to refer to OPS then OPS say you F up dr.
Open clinic and chain become CEO and minister is back in 80s and 90s only
Nasty to patient my foot. You want to get fired? And if own clinic you lose biz and rep
No way man. Kowtow to patients even more than in OPS where at least you follow guidelines someone can still support you. In pte follow guidelines or follow patient ICE?
Multuple problems? In pte chin chueh! Oh by the way hor....this and that. Cost patient money? Nah. They at dispensing will say har this one for what? How much? Ok I dowan. This one? I skip la. Then your clinic staff say dr charge long consult fee they say why so expensive? Just talking only what. Why is there even consult fee at all? Just talking onli.

Obvious you are not a pte GP.

But I agree with you. Stick to OPS. Things have changed now got career path for FMed. Very lucrative.

Pte GP you really got to put on the charm and bend over backwards do what pt likes etc.
Do clinic still have those "special concoctions"? Like for cough got phensedyl 40% bromhexine 40% prednisone 20%?
