727 Nigerian Doctors Migrate To UK In Five Months

No fewer than 727 medical doctors trained in Nigeria relocated to the United Kingdom between December 2021 and May 2022, The Punch reports.

The figure was contained in data obtained by our correspondent from the website of the General Medical Council of the United Kingdom on the number of foreign doctors working in the UK.

The data showed that Nigeria is the country with the third highest number of foreign doctors working in the UK, coming behind only India and Pakistan.

As of November 2021, 8,983 Nigerian trained doctors were working in the UK.

But another 727 were licensed between December 2021 and April 2022.

That brought the total number of Nigerian doctors in the UK to 9,710.

The Punch reports that the development is coming at a time the Federal Government failed to pay the new hazard allowance to medical doctors and other categories of health workers.
