Default GP careers in Singapore

Hello all

My wife and I are considering a move to SG as I have a job offer from a firm. My wife is a GP here in London, and we were wondering what job prospects were like for GPs in Singapore.

Our limited research indicates that she will likely have to find work in a govt hospital for 18 months. We have also been told that the pay isn't all that, and certainly much less than the UK.

Would be really grateful for a chat with any GPs who've moved out there. Happy to converse on the forum, email, WhatsApp, phone etc!

Many thanks!

Can't help much, but ...

There are Gov Polyclinics

There are private group polyclinics - Raffles, Gleneagles, etc etc

Ditto with hospitals.

Dunno how the structure works but there are many ex pat doctors and nurses from a range of countries. My Cardio guy is from US.

Unless an expert in a particular field I think you are correct in salary expectations.

im not so sure if its same for expat doctors but local doctors do go through a sort of system. They start out at polyclinics usually (unless youre rich enough to fund a private practice) or as army doctors for males that go through national service. then they graduate to hospitals, and then to private practices. And the pay grade is as such.
