CHANGE NOTICE: Following a recent consultation, we have made several changes to our data processing and methodology for the 21 February 2019 publication. The figures produced under the new methodology are not comparable with any previously published figures. Revised figures for December 2017 and September 2018 have been calculated and published as part of the 21 February 2019 publication and revised historical figures from September 2015 to current will be published 25 April 2019. The online interactive dashboard has not yet been updated; figures for December 2018 and with the revised figures using the new methodology will be released on 25 April 2019.
This report presents data about GPs, Nurses, Direct Patient Care and Admin/Non-Clinical staff working in General Practice in England, along with information on their patients, practice and the services they provide.
This is a quarterly publication and includes final data from September 2015 to September 2018. Final December 2018 data will be available in February 2019.
CHANGE NOTICE: From the June 2018 collection, the source for GP Registrars (foundation and specialty registrar trainees on placements in General Practice) changed. The new data source is the Health Education England (HEE) Trainee Information System (TIS). This has improved the quality of our Registrar data and removes the need for a provisional data release. This publication contains June 2018 and September 2018 data based on the change in data source, with information prior to June 2018 using the previous source of ESR data.
CONSULTATION: Further information on the new data source for GP registrars and other proposed improvements to the General Practice Workforce publication are discussed in our "Methodological Change Notice" available under Resources. We are continually looking to improve the quality of the data in this series to make them more useful for our users and we welcome any feedback on these proposed changes to email@example.com, by the 20th January 2018.
Various data breakdowns are available in the accompanying Excel and CSV files, including time series and breakdowns by categories such as age and gender. Data is also presented regionally and at practice level in the accompanying CSVs.
This publication also features an online interactive dashboard which allows users to explore the underlying data in a variety of ways. This can be accessed by clicking on the dashboard icon below.
