A new report published in Welt Newspaper approved that healthcare system in Germany is still in need for 2.600 general practitioners in 2013 in comparison with 2.000 in 2012. In addition to the lack of GPs , Germany needs about 2.000 specialists in addition to 1.250 psychiatrists. “The numbers show how urgently we need doctors for primary care,” said KBV spokesman Roland Stahl. In Germany there are around 52,000 general practitioners' clinics and 66,400 specialist clinics – 22,000 of which are psychiatric. Most of these are concentrated in towns and cities, meaning the countryside is lacking in services. Many doctors are retiring every year while new doctors are not enough to take their place If there are no doctors, this often means that pharmacies and physiotherapists also shut, according to the KBV. It said that by 2021, 51,000 general practitioners and specialists will have retired. Stahl added that the KBV was trying to lure younger doctors into the countryside with financial incentives. If we searched about the cause of the this problem , we will realize that low salaries for doctors in Germany can be the main cause of it. This is a chart showing the minimum and maximum salaries for doctors in Europe , you may notice that although Germany needs doctors but their salaries are not fair enough , this is why many doctors migrate from Germany to Sweden and United Kingdom for financial causes.
