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.

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 figures produced under this new methodology are not comparable with any previously published figures. The online interactive dashboard has also been updated to include these revised figures.

This quarterly 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.

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 for December 2018, in the accompanying CSVs.

On 22.02.2019 some figures in tables 6a and 6b (for each staff group) were updated to align with the latest regional hierarchies.
