Council collects workforce data from doctors as part of the renewal of practising certificates.
This data collection is additional to what we use to maintain doctors' registration and includes information around hours worked per week, hours on-call, ethnicity and detailed employment information like employer type, work role, and work type down to sub-specialty level.
This information can then be analysed to identify changes or trends in the medical workforce.
The most recent published survey results are shown below. To see the full list of available reports, go to our Publications page and filter the list to 'Workforce Statistics'.
