Average GP salary ~ £98,000 (https://www.healthjobs.co.uk/health-...guide/#average)
Average Cardiologist ~ £100,000 (https://www.prospects.ac.uk/job-profiles/cardiologist)

Are you basing speciality choice on salary?

Because you prefer being a cardiologist? More to life than exactly how much you’re paid.

Because they are entirely different jobs?

Just don't go to uni, marry someone rich.

I suspect that GPs on average earn more per hour than cardiologists by the way. GPs are much more likely to be part time and I'm not sure the cited source considers that. GP pay is super complicated though - each practice is basically a business in its own right - so its hard to tell.

Initially a GP would certainly earn more due to the pay boost they get in training and, as you say, the shorter training.

in the grand scheme of medical training, 3 years is not a lot of time
