Thanks alot!
In the pte GP market having a MRCGP will make no difference to your salary.

In the public sector having a MRCGP is also not much use since they only recognize MMed Fam Med as specialist family physician qualifications.

So if you have your mind set on coming back to SG might as well come back ASAP.

And asking from perspective of both specialist (i.e those who left after serving at least few years as consultant) and family physician (those who completed mmed/fellowship)
I donít see why not.
There have been cases of returning specialists and FPs.
If you are fully qualified and no bad blood / not burnt your bridges, I donít see why not.

What you mean when you ask "Do they even exist"?

less.
Caribbean Medical School lol!

Thats where all the North American Medical School rejects go to ans then out MD at the back of their names but can never get into a residency training position.

Biggest scam ever.

Great if you are happy to have MD at the back of your name but work as clinic manager or recruiter
