Jobs are increasing and offering significant numbers of long-term career opportunities.

The healthcare industry comprises all organisations that offer products and services to people in need of any preventive, rehabilitative or curative treatment.
The healthcare industry is also made up of several other industries such as the pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology industry, healthcare equipment industry and several other life sciences industries that work for the development of the healthcare sector.
Whilst the NHS may dominate the provision of healthcare in England, the country is home to a significant private sector.
