Title ‘Dr’ UK

Hi all I know this has been done to death but I’m slightly interested as its now 2016. In the UK a number of HCP (dentists, vets and chiro) are adopting the title ‘Dr’ and without going into the PhD issue as outside that qualification it appears the use of ‘Dr’ is purely of ones own choice as there appears to be no regulation of the title. As I understand it in some parts of Europe eg Portugal and in Malta the title ‘Dr’ can and is used by Podiatrists
