My Sisters Husband has to ahve some sort of Heart Surgery they say his heart is out of Rythem and they need to go in and Shock it ??? and i was Curious how serious this is ,if its common and what if ...
I was looking for this as well... Thanks for asking.
Heart surgeons are not treated differently for pay to other surgeons. The NHS has a pay scale and I think the most senior surgeons and consultants negotiate a contract. However, I think that a senior surgeon can expect to earn between ¬£80,000 and ¬£150,000pa. If contracted full-time to the NHS, they may also spend 10% of their time treating private patients.
There's no such thing as a 'heart surgeon' as such. If you mean cardiologist, then they can get anything from ¬£60,000 upwards: more in private practice. It depends on their reputation, which branch of cardiology they specialise in, etc.
