Just curious do fps in polyclinic do additional locum work (i.e moonlighting)
We all know it's illegal, but I am aware that most mopex does it; just curious if one reaches fp or senior fp or even AC level in ops, do they still bother to locum? 😂

lolz.
when I was resident I told my pd I feel I'm very lousy with acute presentation during my review.
he tell me can get some experience by locuming
then suddenly he switch topic and talk about something else. I guess he locum a fair bit during his time.
I locum once before. cannot la. very shag. after work brain fried liao. I earn that 300 bucks I feel like post call. it was a Friday night, I go back entire weekend no energy.

it's not illegal per say once u are full reg. it's just against company guidelines. they can penalise u but they can't revoke ur medical license.
at some point , marginal utility from extra money not worth it.
mo salary 6k, 300 locum pay not bad.
fp 15k, what's 300? my long term sanity more important.

I think locum exp is impt.
As a baby mo, like during the elective posting.
My boss at polyclinic at that time brought us walk abt on the first day
And asked if we are full or conditional reg
I answered full, and he asked me to locum

The idea is to appreciate our gp colleagues, and the difficulties faced by them.
So I got some slots from Sma site.
I found some locum sessions to be beneficial in my junior days.
Of course stopped after the great culling in 2018.

But it was useful then.

300 dollars is only 3 hrs of work, i.e 1 evening shift. Given ops working hrs of 8-5, and alternative sat, a hardworking Dr who has no family (i.e single) could potentially close to double their income?

This is my calculation based on a 4 week month (i.e 20 weekdays, 8 weekend). Correct me if I am wrong.
- locum on 20 weekdays 3hr evening shift (total will be 6k)
- for the 2 sat you rostered to work in ops in the morning, you locum in the evening (total will be 600 dollars)
- for the remaining 6 weekends days that you are not rostered in ops, (you can do full day locum, assuming you work 8hrs on average) - total will be 4.8k

So total locum income will be 12.4k on top of your usual fp salary? Still quite worth it as almost double leh
