General Practice Workforce


25.04.19. Following a recent consultation, we have made several revisions to our data processing and methodology and updated the figures from September 2015 to December 2018 in the General Practice Workforce December 2018 publication (originally released 21 February 2019). The figures produced under this new methodology are not comparable with any previously published figures.

December 2017, September 2018 and December 2018 figures were published in the first installment of this publication on 21 February, and in a planned revision of the publication, the remaining historical figures from September 2015 to current have now been published. The online interactive dashboard has also been updated to include these revised figures.

The general practice data shows numbers and details of GPs, Nurses, Direct Patient Care and Admin/Non-Clinical staff working in General Practice in England, along with information on their practices, staff, patients, and the services they provide.

This page includes links to all publications in this series, with the most recent at the top.

In the "Resources" section at the bottom of this page you can find our experimental interactive dashboard, and our series-level data quality statement. Each publication also includes its own publication-specific statement.

The interactive dashboard allows users to explore the underlying final data in a variety of ways. Please provide any feedback on this product via (with NHS Workforce as the subject) or 0300 303 5678.

This series was formerly known as "General and Personal Medical Services".
