Eh? Think you got the process mixed up here. Drs start on 22k and work up to consultant, not the other way round.(Original post by Afsanax)
for getting the highest grades in the country (you need a's and a* in gcse and A*AA at a levels 6 years+ at uni, you'd think the pay would be better than 20k a year lol
Doctors get A*'s and A's at GCSE, you also need A*AA at a levels to get into medical school. Think about all that hard work. That being said, you have to actually have to get an offer for a medical school first, which is highly competitive. I've heard that for every one place theres 60 applicants for the best uni's. All that hard work doesn't finish there, you then do around 4-6 years studying at uni. Then if you want to be a consultant, you need to study EVEN longer. And then, after ALL THAT, do you finally start working but only earn 22k a year LOL no wonder they're complaining. They have a considerably low starting pay considering how long it takes to become a doctor.
What makes medics so greedy? watch

This is how people behave when they get rejected from med school.

could have sworn most gps get 60-90k (~100k in london), likewise consultants. but if your on about those in 1st 3 years of gp training than more or less ballpark figure.
If you want an easy job with £50/hour be an optometrist.

Spoiler:Showthat being said, community pharmacists in some parts of the country earn shocking (bad) wages (£10-14/ hour ) and a lot of community pharmacists have to work much longer hours with no/extremely limited lunch breaks and have to generally deal with more patients on a daily basis (doctors complain about 60 patients a day, try trying to counsel / check up on up to 300 patients a day whilst trying to act as a shopkeeper and managing staff and accounts more or less simulatenously)

medics would become unemployed if their patients were cured. their job is to keep people sick enough to need their services and products frequently and not be cured
as you would expect such a profession would attract the worst people in society
I know a hell of a lot of doctors and 95% of them are soulless money grubbers or outright sociopaths. 95% of the medics on this forum would fit that description
There are still some good doctors but mainstream medicine is a killing field

Medics go in to treat the sick, not cure them. Like welfare: give a man fish for a year and when you stop he'll starve to death; teach him how to fish and he'll live forever.
Give a man a treatment and he'll feel better and come back to you for more treatment later, because you never cured what was wrong with him (by design) and now he's hooked on your drugs that cause cascading side effects that need more drugs to treat; teach a man how to feed himself properly, and take natural herbs, and supplement with minerals, and eat organic food, and he'll never need to go to the doctor in the first place.
The logic is really simple: if everyone was healthy tomorrow, all non-emergency doctors would become unemployed. Whether it seems too cruel to be true to you or not is kind of irrelevant; doctors benefit by keeping people sick and dependent, and the people who go into such jobs are likely to be bad people.
Ps. Lol at the 16 year old trying to argue. Come back when you can vote.
Damn, 2 years in med school and we still *only* learn how to cure people. I guess something must be wrong with Nottingham for not teaching us on how to spread diseases. Almost as if the very first skill you learn wasn't how to wash your hands properly so you avoid spreading bacteria and viruses.
