I understand from my seniors that they are usually offered 2-3 year contract when they sign on with ops (for fm) or hospital (for AC)
Is there a possibility that they can choose not to renew your contract subsequently or choose to alter the terms (e.g lower pay etc)
No great prophet / oracle / DMS / Min Ong here to answer your question.
But unlikely to happen in the near future.
Pay was only revised (upward) last year. No reason to increase it and bring it back down again few years later.

*pay revision was for OPS. Canít speak for the rest of the institutions.

Not sure if that applies for gp?
I would think that for Chain gp grps, if you can work longer hours/nights (i.e no family commitment), it will be better?

lol
1 doctor ask
3 or 4 replies from people who aren't doctors

1. know for a fact ?
Dude, in SG , the only private hospital that hire specialist is raffles. The rest of the specialist are self employed. Raffles dont need u to poach patients over. You think u are some lawyer going from one firm to another?

2. OPS salary increase last year?
Haha.

3. Where got 2-3 years contract? unless u are some clinical associate or overseas hire. All locals or locally trained ones are hired on a permanent basis with 1 month termination notice that can be given by each side. Its iron long as you do your job.

Just wondering if you are the HR or boss of a chain gp group, what are the things you look out for in potential candidate? Do you look for qualifications (e.g gdfm/mmed etc), work experience (i.e previous mopex postings), commitment (meaning number of hours the candidate can work/slog)?

whether the person is likeable. cos you need patients to come back.
business mindset. cos you need to generate profit from the clinic which is a business after all.
anyway, most days they hire any tom dick and harry with mbbs. just need a warm body to fill the clinic so they can rake in the cash from run off the mill patients.
