I was having a chat with a friend of mine about this topic and it inspired this next post…
Footballers are paid £250,000 a week. Yes, £250,000 a week to kick a football around. However, doctors on the NHS are paid next to nothing a year. They’re saving lives all day, yet cuts are affecting their salaries.
This is actually worrying. The fact that talented individuals are paid more than educated and selfless health professionals who save lives each day? In my opinion, that’s an injustice.
I’m not saying footballers should not be paid that much, that’s none of my business. They’re worthy in their own rights. However, if that’s the case, health professionals on the NHS should be paid just as much, if not more.
NHS doctors and nurses are incredible. They not only save lives every day, but they’re on call round the clock, providing a level of care that goes above and beyond their job specification and pay-check. They’re heroes. Real heroes.
To the doctors and nurses who’re still working in the NHS despite cuts, thanks. Without you, we all wouldn’t be able to function.
