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The figures in this publication are no longer valid as they were calculated using the previous methodology and therefore have now been superseded.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


A high level view of GPs by type working in General Practice.

Please note: The pdf publication document was amended and re-published on 01/02/2017 due to potential misleading information in the commentary; all figures contained within the document are unaffected.

Due to the change in data source these statistics are provisional experimental, so care needs to be taken when interpreting these figures. More information on the effect of this change on the figures provided here can be found in the data quality section.

Time series data, results for England, by NHS England Regions, NHS England Region Geographies Clinical Commissioning Groups, Health Education England regions and practice level results is available within the bulletin tables

Given the classification of 'Provisional Experimental statistics' NHS Digital invite comments and feedback on this publication.
