Anyway, everyone needs to realize that doctors only form a component of the healthcare system. We may be big fish in the pond but we are ultimately not the pond itself. The sooner we realize that, the better we move on from old hangups about prestige or respect.

Now nobody gives *hit about doctors. They are just there to do your bidding.

Unregistered Can I ask are people working in private sector (either private gps/specialists) subjected to regular RRT, the cessation of elective cases (for surgeons) and the cross institution movement restrictions that doctors in public sector are subjected to?

Itís up to the department / hospital policy.
SSR AC C all have to be on call. But the type of call varies from department to department.
Some departments require a Ďstay iní call or itís equivalent (like ED night shift, you canít escape it even when you are senior), some allow a Ďstay outí call (I.e. rush back to hospital when **** hits the fan and registrar cannot manage)

Depending on the hospital / department policy / your consultantís own personal views, you may or may not get to wear the regular scrubs when you are not on call.
Generally surgical disciplines allow you to wear the regular hospital scrubs daily, although some may not allow you to wear it when running clinics.

If you want to wear your own scrubs, you probably have to be damn good at what you do so others wonít point fingers at you / HOD wonít scold you.
