Working within the healthcare industry can prove to be a very rewarding career. If you are a good communicator and possess a real passion for caring for people then there are lots of careers to consider within this industry.

You may consider becoming a staff nurse in a hospital or an assistant in a care home for the elderly. Although this type of work can be immensely satisfying it often involves a lot of hard work, long hours and the pay is sometimes quite low considering this.

However, there are lots of professions in the medical field that do offer very highly paid salaries. Professionals such as surgeons, anesthetists, psychiatrists, specialist registrars and GP’s can easily earn anywhere between £50,000 to £80,000 per annum.

Although rewarding, these types of careers will require years of study and training. For instance, it can take up to 9 years to earn GP status and 12 years to become a senior doctor.
