The healthcare industry provides employment opportunities in both the private and public sectors. It is a field often involving high levels of responsibility and stress, but is also an extremely satisfying professional area, which is oriented entirely toward helping those in need. Careers in the sector, however, do not exclusively involve direct medicine. Many positions are also needed in the administrative aspect of the industry, and there is a diverse range of available jobs for those with a wide variety of interests.
Approximately half of all professionals in the industry earn mid-range salaries of between £25K and £40K.
In London, average incomes tend to be slightly higher than elsewhere in the UK. Average salaries, however, show little variation from region to region.
