Numbers of Patients Registered at a GP Practice - October 2016

Publication date: 09:30 October 18, 2016


PLEASE NOTE: Following the consultation on the proposal to stop producing this report, it has been confirmed that this report will continue to be produced by NHS Digital. The format in which it will continue is yet to be finalised.

Data are extracted as a quarterly snapshot in time from the GP Payments system maintained by NHS Digital. This release is an accurate snapshot as at 1 October 2016.

Since April 2014, geographical references have been taken from 2011 census information.

GP level data are released in single year of age (SYOA) and 5-year age bands, both of which finish at 95+, split by gender and aggregated.

Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS England Region and NHS England Commissioning Region level data are released in 5-year age bands which now finish at 95+, split by gender and aggregated.

Unlike previous versions of this report, there is no suppression of data for practices with 100 or fewer registered patients.

An additional machine readable version is provided in practice/LSOA/totals format. Further information on LSOA is available via the link at the end of the page.

New Health Geography structure:

Please note that this publication reflects NHS England's health geography structure as at 1 April 2016. (This includes the 2015 change, whereby NHS England Area Teams were replaced by NHS England Regions.)

Furthermore, in addition to the 3-digit ODS codes, this report now includes the ONS 9-digit codes for each CCG, Region and Commissioning Region.
