My friends son has just qualified after many years of hard work as a Doctor. He worked
nearly 80 hours last week. He's on around
25,000 pounds a year.
Let's all have a quick reality check please. 👎👎.

I belive the first year salary is £26,000, which rises in the second year to £30,000. As they gain experience a doctor's salary rises and they can earn substantial sums, which they thoroughly deserve. The problem with public sector pay is that if it rises substantially it has to be paid for and whilst we still have a deficit and enormous debt, this would be a very dangerous route to go down. Don't forget many public sector employees have pensions that would be virtually impossible to provide in the private sector. More importantly, is he a gooner?

I hear the money argument but that's life does not bother me. imagine every doctor on 350k a week just not possible. plus money isn't everything just ask steven clauker etc.

well done on the qualification tho.

Derby., That's the most ignorant post I've ever read on here. You should be ashamed of yourself. We all know sportsman are paid a premium. The point of the post was to basically to say that when you hear players that are on 150,000 per week then want 400,000 per week it's absolutely ridiculous in the real world. Anyhow I'm sure the eds posted your post to show what an ignoramus you are mate. Sorry Eds.

Derby. God forbid if ever you are your family are in the A&E department and a young doctor is trying his best to save your life who is knackered from just working 80 hours.
Just think about Sanchez who is asking 400,000 a week for kicking a ball around. What a complete, well I can't even find a word for you that the Eds would post on here.

I for one don't understand how you can be so badly offended by that lanesra! It's a fact. Do you think he's an idiot for saying what players earn doesn't bother him. Should it bother us if it doesn't are we all idiots. Working in the NHS is notoriously a crap deal. You have to go study at uni for years and end up in debt to get paid a little more than a pot washer? Who's the idiot? If there is such thing as heaven then maybe your doctors will end up there! The fact of the matter is that if you decide to work in the NHS then your first motivation should be to make a didfence not money because your in it for the wrong reasons. I personally take my hat of to them. I never did futher education and started as basically a labourer in oil and gas and after the same amount of time that my friends spent at uni I was on 75k a year! Should I be ashamed. I understand that it may be a touchy subject for you mate but I think it's bang out of order to start calling people ignorant because you don't agree.

Sanogo . Get real!

07 Jul 2017 09:09:49
Eds. Give some back up here what do you think the point of my original post was and the replies .?

{Ed001's Note - I can see both sides. You are saying it shouldn't be like that and they are saying but it is so deal with it. Not worth arguing over, both sides are right to a degree.}

07 Jul 2017 09:32:22
Your blinkered mate. No one is disrespecting doctors. Derby simply said what footballers get doesn't concern him and you called him names. Maybe we should all think like you! I think it's you who needs to get real because you simply don't seem to understand how the world works mate because your whining and moaning about things that have nothing to do with you. Anyway back to the pot washing😂.

I will never get this why does footballer get 150k a week to kick a ball argument, the fact is footballers or for that matter anyone who is working gets money as dictated by the market, a teacher or a doctor can never earn as much as an elite level sportsman today and it is not unfair, this isn't meritocracy it is basic capitalism, A Hospital or a school do not earn 500mn a year like Man utd did last year why then will a teacher or a doctor be paid the wages a utd player earns.

I'm going to drop this subject now thanks.

07 Jul 2017 12:09:53
I never understand why sportsmen constantly get compared to NHS workers. As sanogo said, if money is the motivation to become a doctor, then your in the wrong game really.

07 Jul 2017 14:49:56
Lanesra. The point is I agree that some workers if not most in NHS get less than what they maybe should and I'm sure derby agrees as well mate. What derby said was he wasn't bothered what footballers get paid NOT he wasn't bothered about what doctors get paid! He even said congrats on the qualification. I didn't like how you then went on to demonise him for something he didn't say. Like pointed out above it's a capitalist society not a socialist one. And you finished your original post by saying reality check. Well as pointed out to you above that is the reality. Please try and not demonise people so easily it's not fair mate.

sorry not logged on since guys. the post was just the truth mate I don't get beat up on wages and no fan really should imo.
I don't go see a film hating on an actor life is a lottery some win some lose. enjoy it the end lol.

LANESRA, think about it this way - the NHS isn't in the business of making money and in fact loses millions a year. How do you expect doctors and nurses to be paid millions a year by an organisation that loses money? Raise taxes even more? Then you and I lose money .

Private doctors make a hell of a lot of money. In most developed countries, being a private specialist in a field means HUGE money.

Now, compare that will footballers where clubs make healthy profits year on year and for them to keep making profits they need to reinvest and this means paying higher wages.

It's simple economics and your failure to understand this still doesn't mean you go about calling people names.

On the issue of Sanchez, I don't think he's worth £400K a week, I don't think he's worth over £200K a week, but I can assure you that anyone disagreeing with me will not be subjected to any name calling.

07 Jul 2017 18:43:02
Sharpey I don't think any footballer is worth any more than £1000 a week. They only blow it on women, houses, cars and gambling. Lucky b@$7ards.

07 Jul 2017 21:52:52
Sharpie how would doctors getting paid more in the NHS through increased taxes effect you in Saudi lol 😂 Unless they get paid in crude oil 😜.
