‘The workman is worthy of his hire’ What is an anaesthetist worth in 2010?


  • The Bible: 1 Timothy 5:18.

  • Comparative currency estimates throughout this article were based on exchange rates taken from the Bank of England Statistical Database available at http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/statistics/index.htm (accessed 06/02/2010). Mean exchange rates for January 2010 were used for contemporary hourly rates, while year-specific averages were used for historical rates. The authors acknowledge that many factors confound the comparability of earnings in different countries, and accept no responsibility for any mass exodus of British anaesthetists to Australia or even the US.
