About the Healthcare Industry

The largest employer in the healthcare sector by far is the NHS.

There are over 350 different job roles in the NHS from consultant doctors, nurses, midwives, radiographers, healthcare scientists through to non-clinical roles such as IT specialists, electricians, finance managers and engineers.

Norfolk is home to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the UK. The hospital is a teaching centre for nurses (adult and children's), midwives, doctors, therapists and operating department practitioners. It hosts the Norwich GP speciality training scheme.

For further information on how to get a job in the NHS, take a look at the NHS careers website or try the ‘Step into the NHS’ careers tool which will introduce you to over 60 careers requiring a variety of academic abilities.

The NHS is not the only employer in healthcare, a quarter of the healthcare workforce is employed in the private sector working for organisations such as Bupa, Care UK, BMI Healthcare and Spire Healthcare.

Careers in healthcare can be challenging but they can also be very rewarding. If you have empathy for others and a strong desire to help other people with their physical health, this industry could be the one for you.
