How many dermatologists are there in the UK?
Specialists consider that there are not enough dermatologists in the UK. There are only 647 dermatologists, many part-time. They serve a population of 62m. In addition, keep in mind that there are 5000 dermatologists in Germany (where there is a population of 81m). As you can probably notice, the difference is huge. Unfortunately, in the UK, the current national dermatological morbidity is high and it is permanently rising. This is an extremely dangerous trend. Imagine that 13 million people visit their doctor each year with a skin condition.
