11-12k sounds like RMG
What are the hours like.
Cannot compare the monthly pay without comparing hours.
Experience or not, usually not important and doesn’t count for much in terms of pay tbh.
As I said - chains just need a minion to warm the seat.

Having experience in polyclinic does not really translate into being a successful GP in terms of $$$ and business.

Neither does being a good GP who follows all the clinical recommendations and does the "correct" thing that is taught by profs and senior drs in institution translate into being a financially successful GP.

In the private GP market, the customers want a friendly accommodating GP who listens to them, does what they want, gives them good results and is reasonable price wise.

The clinical targets and what not KPI stuff you have in Polyclinic means nothing in private sector. Some patients might be even pissed off you "insist" they do this and that when they don't want to.

But still need to practice safely so you dont get in trouble. It's more a balance of pleasing the customer and doing the right things and making money.

Med school and hospital and polyclinic dont teach any of this to anyone.

Different countries different expectations...even in neighbouring countries the general practitioner is expected to know how to manage normal pregnancies, conduct delivery , do ultrasound bedside , do paeds follow up, do minor surgery like circumcision ( tonnes of religious circumcisions if only urologists do them they'll have time for nothing else). And that is why in bolehland which some people look down on, after their gdfm equivalent they can take further exams culminating in an international fracgp. They can then work one year in Australia to upgrade it to full fracgp.

Government pays locum much much more than their own staff who is doing equal/more work . Enough said.
