In just 100 days, the UK has Employs 353 Nigerian DoctorsI am sure the statistics for those migrating to Saudi Arabia would be higher.
According to information obtained from the General Medical Council's website, which lists the number and details of medical practitioners in the United Kingdom, at least 353 Nigerian-trained physicians were engaged between June 10, 2021, and September 20, 2021.
According to PUNCH, about 862 Nigerian-trained physicians were licensed in the UK between July 24, 2020, and September 21, 2021, and 8, 737 Nigerian-trained doctors are working in the UK.
Despite the COVID-19 epidemic, over 862 Nigerian-trained doctors were licensed in the UK between July 24, 2020, and September 21, 2021, according to the figures. In all, 8,737 Nigerian physicians are now practicing in the United Kingdom.
â€œIf 353 Nigerian doctors have been licensed in the last 100 days, I am sure the figure will double within the next one month. The strike has opened the eyes to the doctors that Nigeria does not care about them.
â€œI am sure the statistics for those migrating to Saudi Arabia would be higher. I have always said it that remuneration is usually the trigger for migration. It is now worse today due to insecurity and the lack of political will by government appointees to address the issues affecting the health sector.
â€œI can tell you categorically that some of the issues we are fighting for are matters that should have been addressed since 2014 and we are still protesting in 2021. Like we have always said, whatever you earn in Nigeria, you stand the opportunity of earning three times that amount with better working conditions.â€
