If you want to be a nurse then go ahead and apply for nursing degree at university. Nursing is a satisfying job as you know that you were part of a team who helped people get better after serious illness and operations. We need more nurses.

Same thing if you want to work as a radiography.


Nursing have a large field of various areas you can work in as a qualified nurse. More promotion to higher bands compared to radiography as you would have probably seen during work experience.

Yes nurses can work in a GP surgery as some practices will be willing to provide extra training if required for the job.

Radiographers can't work in GP surgery unless it's like a large community practice that have that type of equipment in it.
