We take a look at where you can find health jobs in London

These days it seems like less and less graduates are moving into the health sector. There are multiple reasons for this, but the most common one seems to be the fact that the government keeps cutting funding to the health sectors, making our health professionals work exceptionally long hours and paying them less money into the bargain.

While this hardly seems fair given the great work that these health workers do, that's simply the way it is in the United Kingdom these days. It is for this reason that anyone who is interested in working in the health industry must be given the full support of everyone around them to ensure that they can see the rigorous training right the way through to the end.

There are a number of different kinds of health jobs in London that you could look at once you are fully qualified, however not all of them will need a medical degree and internship - this is reserved for those who want to become doctors, medical consultants or specialists.

Often, it is possible to make your way into a health job with just a diploma in a suitable subject such as health sciences, physiology, biology, chemistry, psychology, social science or another similar subject. Once graduated, you can expect to start on a wage of between £17,000 and £28,000 per year, depending on the area you specialised in. The earning potential you will have will very much depend on your speciality, but you can expect to top out at somewhere between £32,000 and £100,000+ per year.

With so many hospitals and health institutions in the London area, it can be difficult to know exactly where to look once you have graduated. In order to make your life a little easier, we have included some of the biggest below;

  • King's College Hospital, Denmark Hill, London
  • London Bridge Hospital, 27 Tooley Street, London
  • Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, 369 Fulham Road
  • Royal Brompton Hospital, Sydney Street, London
