    Hi, could anybody tell me about the route to specialisation?!
    I know that you'll have to do ur SHO and then SpR....may I know if we'll get paid during this duration or training and are there any standard/bench fees on the way?
    Btw...the govt pose a high income tax right? How many percent is it?
    Thank you so much?!

    it is all changing so that if you want to specialise then you will do a few years as a foundation course then specialise as a registrar.

    the pay is good not great beacuse it is on time served and grade. if you are a fantastic lawyer you can make shedloads after four or five years but in medicine you are on a fixed scale.

    i had a look at the royal college of physisicians website

    :rolleyes:

    PRHO (2 years) - about £24/26K
    SHO (2 years) - £28/30K
    Registrar (5 years) - £30-40K
    Consultant - £60K +

    By the time we qualify they'll also have Junior and Senior Consultants.

    The pays given are very general. Depends on speciality after SHO etc.

    look at the inside cover of the BMJ job section - the pay scales are published every week. You do get paid during post - grad training - well you have to be because it takes on average 12 years and won't get shorter whatever the government thinks. Think of it like being a junior in a law firm - think of the consultant as the senior partner
