As healthcare workers are being driven from the NHS due to difficult working conditions, we decided to take a look at how other countries' health systems are faring with an international comparison of doctors.
According to the most recent OECD data, Austria is at the more equipped end of OECD countries with an average of 5.5 doctors per 1,000 of its population. In the United Kingdom, there are fewer doctors at 3.2 per 1,000 inhabitants, while the United States has 2.6 per 1,000. China and India recorded even lower numbers at 2.4 and 0.9 doctors per 1,000 people, respectively.
