I know salaries are generally lower in the UK, but I can’t get over how little they pay their paramedics.

I can’t even imagine how difficult it is to recruit in today’s economy.

Generally, UK paramedics are on the same pay scale as UK RNs.

yeah, but it might still not be great:

https://uk.jobted.com/salary/paramedic give a paramedic starting salary around 30k USD
https://www.payscale.com/research/UK/Job=Paramedic/Salary has the average be about the same.
https://uk.indeed.com/career/paramedic/salaries has it starting at $43544.72 USD, which is better, but still not great.

as per https://uk.indeed.com/career/registered-nurse/ nurses make about 43,097.60.

so a paramedic might make on par with nurses, but judging by the cost of living in london, it might not be good

And that’s with a bachelors degree requirement…
