Do not look down on others/locums
Everyone has their own path. It does not mean having an MMED makes you a better doctor or that having a GDFM only makes you a lesser doctor.

Admin staff

Hi, public healthcare admin staff here. What do doctors think about admin staff and do you folks expect us to just support and execute, or use brain and help you guys? I have worked in a few institutions, general feel is that doctors just want us to keep our opinions to ourselves and execute according to instructions given. But quite a few doctors, and other clinicians I have worked with really cui when it comes to admin work, like planning. Culture of the laojiao admins who are my superiors is to just suck up to doctors and execute, don't gehkiang, but this is making work disengaging for me. Seems like those who can survive and stay in public healthcare long enough are those who can follow culture. Need some feedback and advice.

Also, If i want a break from clinical for my mental sanity , do i have any options? I am not keen in research so pharma companies is not an option for now.
Now no vaccine centers or CVH also to " take a break"
I am a young FP who really would like a short break, honest answers are truly appreciated from the bottom of my heart

My last option for a break is part time locum, but some guidance on finding slots will be good
you gdfm? got time locum no time take mmed? disappointing.

Unregistered So locum rate is only $100/hr?

So little?

Nowadays standard is to earn around 500k a year. Work day and night as dr only half that.

Really joke

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
sure.
since u at it , why don't u assume this gp also locum at 24 clinic?
everyday after work 6pm on wards work there till 6am tomorrow.
one day additional 1.2k.
one week 6k extra, one month 24k extra just Monday to Friday.
do 5 year can retire liao.

废话.
