The number of consultants and nurses per 100,000 population


Published: 09/06/2022


Staff classification can vary between nations and therefore such comparisons should be treated with caution. These figures exclude staff in private providers of NHS care, staff in NHS hospitals employed by non-NHS organisations, and bank staff; levels of these staff will vary by nation. Staff levels are for full-time equivalents as at September 2021 whereas population estimates are for mid-2020. Northern Ireland excluded from the chart because of lack of comparable data.
