This information is not held centrally. The Information Centre for health and social care collects data on the number of medical staff broken down by country of primary medical qualification. The following table shows the percentage of medical staff qualified outside the United Kingdom.
|Hospital and Community Health Services: All medical staff and the percentage of medical staff qualified outside the UK, England as at 30 September each year|
|AH medical staff (Number)||Qualified outside the UK (Percentage)|
|(1 )This is a percentage of the total medical staff whose country of primary medical qualification is known. Note: The new headcount methodology for 2010 data is not fully comparable with previous years data due to improvements that make it a more stringent count of absolute staff numbers. Further information on the headcount methodology is available in the Census publication. Headcount totals are unlikely to equal the sum of components.
