There's nothing wrong in getting pregnant. If you feel discriminated against, write a complaint letter to MOM or write to the papers. The government here is very pro-foreigners because they badly need us here. They even forced a local Indian family to stop cooking curry because their neighbour from China couldn't take the curry smell.

I am a consultant in the UK wishing to move to Singapore. So far the forum sounds of mixed messages. Can anyone especially doctors who have emigrated from the UK advice please? Thanks in advance

Oh pls !!! overwork in the SAF ?? are u nuts ??

I am not sure you want to start your job hunt that way. Certainly it won't look good on you if you turn up with a big tummy saying I am going to take a long maternity leave soon.

There is discrimination everywhere so expect to be treated as you have treated foreigners who came to your country.

Good luck.

You may have heard wrong. That kind of money is not easy to make and is most likely only in a private setting. Even then you do not have a good headstart as a foreigner. Institution work, ok. You will be paid reasonably but no miracles. Surgical specialties are the more better paid ones.

You heard right. No pay banding or grades. Work hours monitoring? Nice one.

It will be a case of demand and supply, and then luck plus right timing. And preferably you gotta know someone here senior enough. So good luck.

Question pls help... seeking opinions from local doctors working in hospitals

hihi, i'm seeking treatment fr a specialist clinic in one of the sg public hospitals. if i request to change to a different doctor after a few months of seeing a particular doctor, will my request affect my first doctor in any way? i mean in terms of his work record with the clinic & hospital, his appraisal, performance reviews, etc?

any insight or advice will be greatly appreciated, thanks

depends on whether the patient it a PRIVATE or SUBSIDIZED?
If a priv patient switches to Dr B, then Dr B will get a % of the fees paid by the patient. So Dr A loses a patient.
If a subsidized patient switches to Dr B, there is no loss or gain in renumaration for either Dr A or Dr B.
The hospital does not count the switch against any Dr.

hi jonjon, thanks for the explanation & reply, really appreciate it i'm glad to know that my first doc would not be affected negatively. the only thing is, it was one of the senior doctors who discovered that my doc could have made the wrong diagnosis of my condition, if this were to be brought up to my doc's boss' attention, there is nothing i could do about it. but for now, i do not intend to lodge a complaint.
