As of November 2016, there were 1048 Consultant Urological Surgeons in the UK, and 37 in the Republic of Ireland (including locum appointments). 92% of the substantive consultants in the UK are BAUS members.
8.3% of all Consultant Urological Surgeons are female (87 females v 961 males).
The Consultant distribution across Great Britain & Ireland (including 41 locums in England, 5 in Scotland, 4 in Wales, 4 in the Irish Republic & 1 in Northern Ireland) is shown in the pie chart (right).
There were 310 Specialist Registrars (urologists in training) in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland with 20 trainee members in the Republic of Ireland. One third (35%; 110 out of 310) of all trainees are female, reflecting the observation that more than 60% of medical students are also female.
In 2014 it was reported that there were approximately 187 urologists in Associate Specialist or Staff Grade posts in the UK; about 100 of these are BAUS members. Up-to-date numbers in these posts have proved difficult to obtain with any degree of accuracy.
