On the above website, the news editor replace "doctors" with "scientists" so that doctors will not lose face.

""Whatever we say today... maybe six months down the line, would be completely wrong." Is this a disclaimer ?

This is very disrespectful.
Instead of showing solidarity with your ceo, cmb, ministry and government, you are sowing seeds of discord and doubts in our leaders

As medical professionals, We must fully trust our leaders to lead us to victory

A few months ago many people including me predicted Covid cases would explode in SG. We even know the cause and solution. Somehow they still cannot understand.

exactly my point.
Will always have people want to waste their time being a doctor.
Hence will always have free flow labor.

Plus Im a registered acupuncturist and can deal with all sorts of pain , insomnia, for people seeking alternative modality of treatment.

I feel ops is under paying me for my talents.

Can u invest 500k for me to startup a swanky new chain?
Nowadays they give $10 if you have complimentary letter? That's good. At least something. I still have all the letters I got last time in my file but back then no $$$.
You did the GDA? Don't the OPS also have Acupuncture clinic? I know one of the OPS Head also had GDA.
Acupuncture hard to incorporate into medical practice and make money. You should know. More of a case of looks good sounds good but not practical as a business that wants to make money.
