Ireland has more than 10,000 gynecologists, but more than 2,000 of them are now employed in Ireland.
The National Health Service employs 1,800 of these.
These are doctors who are not part of the profession, and they work alongside their colleagues in the community.
In 2014, the number of gynecological surgeries performed in Ireland rose by 11% to 3,937.
That compares with 3,818 in 2014.
It is an encouraging trend that shows Ireland is on track to become a more equitable and equal country, said Dr Richard O’Donovan, the chairman of the National Health Council of Ireland.
However, the numbers are still very low, he said.
We have to do better.
The number of doctors employed in the health service in Ireland has grown by 13% since 2014, from 2,500 to 2,726.
It has increased by a further 1,500 since 2015, with 1,038 more doctors being employed.
Dr O’Connor said the numbers in Ireland are still below the international average.
The proportion of women in Ireland working in the profession has dropped by almost half, to 2.7%, and is only slightly higher than the UK at 2.8%.
However, in terms of the number and type of surgeries performed, the difference is stark, Dr O’sConnor said.
There are 1,600 gynecologic surgeons in Ireland, compared with 2,854 in England, which is the highest proportion of gyns in England.
In Ireland, the average age of an OB-GYN is 35, compared to 34 in the UK, which falls in the middle of the pack at 37.5 years.
The figures are based on data from the latest National Health Survey.
It includes data from doctors, nurses and other health workers.
Dr Brendan O’Neill, a GP and chairman of Ireland’s Health Council, said there were also significant gaps in terms, training, and knowledge.
There is a lack of awareness about the work that they are doing, which in turn affects the quality of care they provide.
“In some respects, we are on the same level as the UK.
There have been some progress, but we still have a long way to go,” Dr O’,Neill said.
