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The figures in this publication are no longer valid as they were calculated using the previous methodology and therefore have now been superseded.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

This report presents data about GPs, Nurses, Direct Patient Care and Admin/Non-Clinical staff in general practice, along with information on their patients, practices, and the services they provide.

This is a quarterly publication and includes final data from September 2015 to March 2018, along with provisional June 2018 data. The June 2018 data is provisional as Electronic Staff Record (ESR) information for June 2018 is not available at the time of publication, therefore ESR data from March 2018 has been used. Final June 2018 data will be available in the November 2018 publication.

Various data breakdowns are available in the accompanying Excel and CSV files, including time series and breakdowns by categories such as age, gender and work commitment. Data is also presented regionally and at practice level.

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 icon below.

CORRECTION NOTICE: As of 27 September 2018 two documents have been amended: "General Practice Detailed Tables March 2018 – NHS E Region" and "General Practice Detailed Tables March 2018 – STP".

Correction made: Table 5 in each document was replaced, as a small number (0.3% (30 out of 8,645)) of the figures were displaying incorrectly.

We apologise if this has caused any inconvenience.
