Registered doctors in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2018, by age

Number of registered doctors in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2018, by age

by Conor Stewart, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Registered doctors in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2018, by age In 2018, almost 290 thousand doctors were registered in the United Kingdom (UK). The age group with the highest number of doctors is among 30 to 39 with over 86.5 thousand, followed by 77.3 thousand registered doctors aged 40 to 49 years. There are almost 9 thousand doctors registered aged over 70 in the UK.
Brexit impact on doctors?

Doctors who graduated from a country in the European Economic Area (EEA) made up nine percent of the total amount of doctors registered in the UK in 2018. This represents the lowest share since 2012, although the share started to decline before the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, so Brexit uncertainty may not be the only reason for the declining doctors from Europe. Doctors from Ireland make up the highest quantity of doctors from the EEA, followed by Greece.

General Practice

Of the 290 thousand doctors registered in the United Kingdom in 2018, around 61.5 thousand are registered as general practitioners. In the last ten years the ratio of patients per GP practice has been deteriorating, indicating a stretch on the health service. In 2008, there was, on average, approximately 6.4 thousand patients to each GP practice in the UK, by 2017 this figure had climbed to over 7.6 thousand.
