Since you brought up the money (income) issue, you should know that you are not going to get rich working for NHS. I am confused re: "a doctorate" v.s. "PhD". In the US, it's the same. But if you mean, a "doctor", that is generally referring to a physician, which is MD. Medical school was not what you were talking about (and it is another subject anyway.) In the United States, it is not just getting a PhD or PsyD degree. It requires thousands of hours of postgraduate on-the-job training, as well. I'm talking about at least 10 years before you are licensed to practice. If that is what you want to do, and willing to put in the time and the expenses, then go for it.
