absolutely
the sense of entitlement
got one long list of medicine to request.
which is fine
but must talk very slowly and give u long story why they need glucosamine, vit b12 complex and paraacetamol, and standby acyclovir cream and standby ketotop
i can prescribe, but i rly cannot wait for u to one by one explain why u need each one.
at the end of this, still tell me vaginal itch. want me to check.

Consult fee difference?
Remember, GP make money from meds.
The few chronic patient they have they earn a lot from their combi meds
Worth the GP time.
Now meds they can't make money
Spend 15 minutes telling u about weight loss
Can see 5 urti each at 60 bucks liao.

300 bucks Vs 28 dollars.
Want earn more must report kpi.
Reason I leave the system is to avoid all these oversight
Now u want to track kpi.
Worth my effort or not is another question

No choice u force me to accept healthier sg
But I have a choice about whether to be actively participating.
Those healthier sg patient..after my first health plan...I chin chye a bit till they go away lo.
Go ops best. Haha.
I see my acute conditions earn more and not so stressed.

U want healthier sg?
Make sure all GP properly trained.
Phased out MBBS GP.
Gdfm have to get m.med eventually else clinic license revoked

Raise ops price so GP is not more expensive.
Then u spread the load and raise quality of primary care

Mrcs nowadays cant even get conditional registration
Has been removed from smc list
Mrcp still can

So smc recognise the quality of mrcp
