Re: Calling on Canadian Family Practitioners/ex UK General Practitioners

This is absolutely a public forum BUT this is a thread which is if you like equivalent to an immigration thread. It has extremely useful and important information for GPs in particular but other...

Re: Calling on Canadian Family Practitioners/ex UK General Practitioners

I've never come across a "you are a slave of the state" attitude from a Canadian. If we were merely maximizing income, why don't we take on twice as many patients?
Why do we have long days with few...

Re: Calling on Canadian Family Practitioners/ex UK General Practitioners

Extremely well put!
I think they miss the point that we are self employed, employing others and running a small business with all the associated costs.
Having all one demographic would be extremely...

re: Chat for and with Canadian Family Practitioners/ex UK General Practitioners

I think I saw most of it before you edited your post, in which case I would say I like a bit of both!!!!

Re: English language proof for citizenship

I don't think it does either! Anyway, they aren't getting it for any of us!
The letters are coming in sporadically. Stinky hasn't had one from the Royal Bank yet.

Re: Question about tax resident

I know and its bugging me.
They all say the same thing that they have to establish tax residency, and then maybe inform HMRC. They says its because of new rules signed by the UK Gov.

Excellent
Nor have I and I'll continue to do the same. I just wondered what others were doing or if I would stand out.

Re: Question about tax resident

I have no issues providing SINs to Canadian financial institutions , my issue is the UK- especially in a letter which is not secure.
Did you give your SIN to UK banks?

On a slightly different slant.
We have also been getting these letters for ourselves and kids.
They do ask for our SIN number which I had thought should not be given out and on the initial way of...

Re: Road trip, advice needed :)

Love that! I was "attacked" by a bat once in Vancouver before it fell into a bush- I often wonder if it had rabies.

re: Chat for and with Canadian Family Practitioners/ex UK General Practitioners

I think some of what you say is true but not the above. The "well, infrequent attenders" do not pay well, it is the complex elderly who pay the bills. In fact the more conditions, the more...

More common in older people.

re: Chat for and with Canadian Family Practitioners/ex UK General Practitioners
