In my personal opinion

Fm need to be a specialty
All fm clinic need to have a fcfps

If u only have mbbs gdfm or mmed
Then u should not be allowed to practise independently

This will put fm in line with other specialties and ensure minimum qc for gps

The problem with locum is it is not scaleable
1hr 100sgd
You work 8 hours daily no rest no holiday

365days*8*100=292k per year

And property price so expensive

Don't need to work so hard. I worked 30 plus hrs a week as a locum for 10 years and could afford yearly holidays, freehold terrace house, maid, car and still have S$30k savings a year. The terrace house made me S$700k in 8 years.

As long as u can get a loan, buy a private property and let it earn money for u.

There are many differences between your GDFM FPs in private compared to OPS.
eg. rigor of extensive experience and patient centred care.
Not the same everywhere so cant generalise.

Good point on whether ops should revert and demote to RP model, consenses is will save costs for the patient

Just curious, are there people who manage to pass mmed without doing a single day of polyclinic? (I.e they join gp land after completing their bond in hospital postings, did gdfm then programme b)

Usually to do FM, have to do MO rotations in polyclinics.

It is also good exposure and training if u want to do Family Medicine.

Fam med residents are quitting as no one wants to wait in the system 3-5 yrs anymore for an AC position. With chains offering sign on bonuses , retention bonuses are not attractive . I wonder if there will be an ops pay review since now hospitals are paying more

Even hospital RP earns more than OPS RP and OPS RP sees more patients
