    NHS careers pay works off banding so in fact a graduate going straight into any of those careers could expect to start on very similar salaries, they all start off at band 5 and this then goes up with increasing responsibilities and experience so really there wont be a major difference in any of them.
    see here ( http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/explore...for-ahp-staff/)

    To pick one of them I d say decide what area you'd rather work in, for example hospital or community, which group of service users/ expertise would you like to work with women or children or would you like to work with bones or muscles or would you like to eyes or human nutrition?

    Don't let pay be a deciding factor on which NHS course you study. If you truly want to study an NHS funded course, that's great, but really take time to consider it. Explore all the options and find out what interests you most. In terms of pay, most NHS careers are similar - as stated above - the pay rate depends on your band, and most graduates start out on band 5, so how much you want to get paid and when actually depends on how hard you work and how ambitious you are.

    I started out studying Nursing, but 6 months into my course I realised it wasn't a career I saw myself in long term. Along the way I had gained serious interest in another NHS profession, and now, 2 years later, I'm starting a course in Diagnostic Radiography, starting next week. I know 110% that's where I want to be.

    Really research your options, don't pick a random course and hope for the best. Good luck.

    You may still need a maintainance loan to live off, be sure to do it because you want the profession itself not just for the lack of debt

    Here's one for your list; Operating Department Practitioner

    If you haven't heard of it, essentially it It prepares you to become a operating department practitioner (ODP), working primarily within operating theatres as a surgical, anaesthetic or recovery practitioner, caring for patients through the perioperative journey, and ensuring the safe preparation of instruments and equipment.

    It's NHS funded and very interesting.

    Getting some work experience would hopefully help you with your decision massively

    I knew from my time studying nursing. I have always been interested in anatomy and healthcare. After gaining some experience in a radiology dept whilst on placement and finding out the kind of opportunities that are available to radiographers throughout their career, I knew it was for me. It combines anatomy, physics, technology, and caring for people, all things I'm interested in. I know nursing focuses on a lot of this too but radiography appealed to me more. With nursing you have to have to mentally think and work out about what's going on with the body, but with radiography you can literally see what's going on. That's what I find most fascinating. My long term career goal is to become an advanced practitioner and get an MSc in reporting, so I can interpret images.

    I'm not 100% sure to be honest. I'd recommend emailing your local Trust and seeing if it's possible. In the meantime, there's plenty of YouTube videos on it which you can check out and definitely attend an open day to check out the course. It's a 2 year DipHE, not a degree - well, it's a DipHE at my uni anyway.

    NHS courses and jobs are very intensive so its important to go into one of them because you are serious about it, not because you won't get into debt.
    Dietetics is only NHS funded in some places. Paramedic Science is also NHS funded at some unis.

    Yeah dont get me wrong im serious about wanting to be healthcare professional, but the real one i wud have liked to do is pharmacy but like i said before, interest is not allowed in Islam so being debt free is just a plus side to not getting involved with interest. Hence why i have decided nhs funded course would be best for my healthcare interests
