Trends among other healthcare personnel in the UK

The number of medical practitioners employed in the UK amounted to approximately 259 thousand in 2018. Although this is a decline from the number in 2015, it is an increase from the 216 thousand practitioners in 2010. The number of nurses in the UK has followed a similar pattern since 2010, with almost 670 thousand in employment in 2018, an increase of nearly 170 thousand since 2010.

Impact of Brexit

Since the UK made the decision to leave the European Union, the number of new nurses and midwives from the EEA has significantly decreased. In the year 2018/19, the number of new registrants from the EEA was less than one thousand, while almost 9.4 thousand joined from the EEA in 2015/16, which was before the referendum concerning the EU membership.
