25 April 2019. Following user and stakeholder consultation, we have made several revisions to our data processing and methodology and revised figures from September 2015 to December 2018.
The figures in this publication are no longer valid as they were calculated using the previous methodology and therefore have now been superseded.
More information and the new revised September 2015 to December 2018 figures can be found on the General Practice Workforce December 2018 publication page at https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/general-and-personal-medical-services/final-31-december-2018.
15 November 2017. The provisional information previously contained on this webpage has been removed. They will be replaced by the final data which are being published at the pre-announced time, 21 November 2017 at 9:30am. They are being published as part of the 'General and Personal Medical Services, England' publication As at 30 September 2017, Provisional Experimental statistics' at http://digital.nhs.uk/pubs/genpermsnov17
Final data March 2017 figures remain available at:http://digital.nhs.uk/pubs/genpermsaug17aa
Provisional figures always get updated to produce final figures, taking into account the latest Electronic Staff Record (ESR) data, and any other changes to finalise the data. However, an additional specific error has been identified in the processing of the data from the North West that has a greater impact on the accuracy of the provisional June figures at national level. This will be rectified, along with updating the ESR figures in the publication of the final figures for June that are released on 21 November. This will be released alongside provisional September figures and further information on the HEE North West issue in the revisions and issues section.
NHS Digital apologises for any inconvenience caused by this.
