The UK has fewer working doctors per head of population than almost all other EU countries, according to statistics branded "extremely worrying" by unions.

Experts called on the government to “get a grip” after European Commission figures showed the UK had 2.71 practising doctors for every 1,000 people – fewer than countries including Bulgaria, Estonia and Latvia.

The UK ranked 24th out of the 27 European nations, only beating Slovenia, Romania and Poland according to the data, published by the EU Commission as part of its ‘Eurostat regional yearbook 2013’.

By comparison there were more than six doctors per 1,000 people in Greece, which tops the list.
