Report Ni's Average Salary From Thursday Night's On The Brink in Northern Ireland Posted September 8, 2009 You have a nasty tendency to take a few simple words, process them in your own head, and assume that the much altered reality is exactly what others would end up with. My problem with medics is nothing to do with pay, nothing to do with title.... it has everything to do with the fact that a great many are totally lost when faced with a scenario not precisely described in the text books. As for SHO pay.... I know SHOs earning large salaries and I know a great many JHOs who are earning well in excess of what you are quoting for SHOs! So either there are extreme local fluctuations or... you are wrong. As you say though, the detail of all of this is somewhat irrelevant so not worthy of further debate. I would wager a large sum of money that no F1 (JHO) in the whole of N.Ireland is on more than 40K. Infact very few would be on 36K max, and to earn that is literally slave driving, often illegal (but voluntary). Who are these F1s you know of that are earning well in excess of 45k?
