The NHS spends £25000 per minute on treating Diabetes 

ITV News 2016

The NHS spends at least £5.1 billion a year dealing with ill health caused by overweight and obesity in England

About 1.5 million people are employed in the NHS throughout the UK. It is very likely that at some time in your life you will use the services of the NHS and will be glad they are there for you when you need them. You are the future of the Health & Social Services in the UK and you have the task of ensuring future generations feel as reassured as you do now.

A career in Health isn’t just about treating patients – without the various support services such as allied health professionals, administrative staff, IT professionals, finance and estates working together as a team the NHS would not be able to function in the way it does now.
