i,m sorry but that kind of money for a nights work when you know their nights work is heres a few tablets and if they don,t work then make appointment with your local doc and he,ll see you when he can.

i know my american friends are going to come in on this since they have to pay for their own medical bills but in britain to be paid that kind of money for one nights work is actually pretty shocking for fact they do nothing.

i,ll lay it out where i found it just for the prove it squad.

3200/24 = 133.333333 and more 3s ... seems legit. I'm not working 24 hrs straight.

They covered 24 hours for 3200 pound, that's like 3 days or just under 1100 pound a day and it was a Christmas shift, holidays you know. You think the doctor being there for the equivalent of 3 days shouldn't have been paid that money? Bollocks. Nobody would have said anything if it was 3 doctors working 8 hour shifts each at 1100 pounds.

If it we're my life in question, or that of a loved one, I would pay anything.

This doctor appears to be the stand-out in the article which suggest to me we are talking about a specialist of some description that was required for that 24hr period - here in Australia a surgeon could potentially earn that in the same time span.

So can crooked cops and politicians - sometimes more.

I have an idea, let's get rid of all of the doctors.

I paid $280 for a car key. Let that sink in for a second. A car key.

No medical school. No 24 hour shift. No medication.

Just a car key. $280 / £188

Money is worthless.

I know the cost can be so high that calling it "expensive" is a massive understatement, but if I have something life threatening going on I want the best doc available and I would expect the best to be expensive. I also want a doctor that likes his or her line of work and doesn't feel under paid or unappreciated. Medical care is not something I want to skimp on.

Nobody is stopping you. Of course a good medical school also wants you to have done well in your previous schooling and competition is stiff. Let us know when you get accepted and complete everything. Once you start earning the big bucks, spend a good 5 or 6 years paying back your loans that are somewhere in the 6 digit number range, then drinks are on you right?

ok - so the " general opinion " seems to be that paying £133 / hour for a doctor is " too much "

please google the hourly charges of a solicitor and get back to me

Skills pay the bills.
I worked up in northern Ontario repairing mining equipment, my job was welding only. Even when I wasn't working I was still getting paid. And when I was 'on call' for the midnight shift I'd be pushing almost 600 dollars a day. I did that for two months.
And was on the clock 24 days out of each month, I took home pretty almost 30 grand in two months of work, and half the time I wasn't even working. People will pay anything to get the job done.

I agree with you 100 percent. Recently, I had to pay almost 200 dollars on one shot ,that I've had before, that will clear up my sinus infection. I've been sick for almost four months with colds and now a sinus infection so I didn't mind dishing out that kind of money based on passed experience and plus I have an amazing doctor who doesn't cut corners. So I don't mind giving out that kind of money if the doctor is great and the care he/she gives is grade A.

Yes medical care is experience, but if a doctor is good then I can't complain about how much he/she makes and how much they charge.

A major problem with being in such a - try anything - desperate situation ( despite the obvious ) is your
vulnerability to clever modern day snake - oil salespeople.

They come in all shapes and forms and span many professions.

Don't get excited until you should.

I am all for golden bullets, yet as we are always reminded; ' The proof of the pudding - is in the eating.'

Caveat Emptor, my friends.

Says a lot when a 'sportsman' is held in higher esteem and more

valued than a Doctor who can be required to make life and death

decisions
