Better in terms of what, can you be more specific? If you mean pay, they are probably similar, you can search the NHS pay scale if you want to know exact figures for each band. If you mean job prospects, probably midwifery. Job satisfaction? Depends on the individual.

What do you mean by job prospects? Better in terms of pay. With physiotherapy you can work in a private practice but with midwifery apparently you can’t . I’m not even sure which one I even like more

Both of these careers are incredibly challenging careers, which I would advise never selecting for the financial aspect. However, if you were set on one of these, I would advise physiotherapist - in midwifery you are working potentially very complex cases involving both parents and newborn children, whereas physiotherapy you work with a range of people. Depends whether you like working with young kids and parents or not really.

I meant job prospects in terms of job availability, because I deffo think midwifery is more in demand and I've heard physio is getting a bit competitive. Yeah, I guess the pay varies with private practice. Yeah, it can be hard to decide, especially as it's difficult to shadow anywhere, but yh just base it on your research what you would prefer? Also there is no harm in gap yearing too if your not sure. Good luck with your decision 🙂
