Our data about doctors with a European primary medical qualification in 2020
Our health services benefit considerably from doctors who have come from all around the world to practise medicine in the UK.
Following the UK’s vote to leave the European Union (EU), many organisations need more data on the roles and numbers of European doctors in the UK.
Our analysis of the data we have on EEA-qualified doctors in the UK includes:
- what areas these doctors work in
- the countries they have joined from
- how long they have been working in the UK.
Our analysis shows the important role of EEA-qualified doctors in UK medical practice. This can help you to inform policy and planning in the health sector.
