The data extracted from GP practices are matched to the Organisational Data Services (ODS) reference data and mapped to the health geography structure that was in place at the time of extraction.
The publications include data on:
- GP practices broken down by the number of registered patients within each CCG area.
- General practice data at single and 5 year age bands which ends at 95+ both split by gender and aggregated.
- Health geographic data by 5 year age bands which end at 95+ split by gender and aggregated.
- Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) data.
The data is extracted at an aggregated level and so cannot be used to identify individual patients. Data before January 2016 is suppressed for practices with less than 100 patients. Data at LSOA level is only available from January 2014 onwards.
