Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 25 September 2017
128,000 non-UK EU nationals were in employment in Scotland in 2016. This estimate is obtained from the Annual Population Survey, January to December 2016. There is no information available on the number of non-UK EU national veterinarians who work in Scotland or information on nationality by years of residence from this source.
