I wrote a reply to an article in The Sunday Times recently. In my reply, which also appeared in the print edition of The Sunday Times, I mentioned that there are some expectations of self-paying consumers. Nursing homes are well and good but we should look into affordability and the familiarity of the home which research has shown that people tend to recover faster and age well. There is also the desire for personalised services, to lead life with respect, to live independently with dignity and on their own terms.

General practitioners are often proud of what they do, albeit quietly. Many find the now popular practice of self-promotion. It is, however, a necessary part of going freelance especially when you just started being a locum GP.

Some people may advise you to “be everywhere.” Use social media, join online forums, have a blog, and go to networking activities here and there. This can be exhausting and could take a lot of your time. Self-promotion is but a small piece of the whole puzzle. With self-promotion, you can make people know you, like you, and trust you. But the big question is, who are those people?

This is where personal branding comes in.

Singapore locum GP rate varies widely. The unwritten rule, however, is that rates of pay tend to be higher when hired directly by practices because you won’t need to pay any agency fees. You can negotiate with the practice with regards to the hours and rates they normally provide for locum doctors.

We suggest that you consider the following factors when setting your Singapore locum GP rates:

  • Your years of experience
  • The number of patients you’re required to see
  • The complexity of the disease
  • The duration of the consultation

[fa icon="calendar'] Jan 11, 2018 11:38:14 PM / by Teo Youliang Hakim

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

In a society where we often assume the nursing role to be primarily taken up by females, it might come off as strange for some to see male nurses running about in the hospitals or clinics.
