A medical career can pay over �100 000.
NHS is in great need of doctors.

6 years on a graduate programme!

Whats your view on this?

Sure it can pay well, but it should not be the reason to become a doctor. If you just want to make money, why don't you become real estate agent, stock broker etc. You don't need 6 years to become one.

After successfully completing medical school, you start on around �25k~. After many, many years of experience (usually at least 10 yrs), you can go private and earn more, but the �100k is far fetched at this stage. That is assuming that you can get into a Medical school because they are very competitive in the UK.
