General and Personal Medical Services, England 2005-2015, as at 30 September, Provisional Experimental statistics
- Publication Date:
- 27 Apr 2016
- Date Range:
- 30 Sep 2005 to 30 Sep 2015
28 November 2019. Following user and stakeholder consultation, we made several revisions to our data processing and methodology and revised all figures from September 2015 to December 2018 in the General Practice Workforce December 2018 publication. Following later changes to the September 2015 to December 2016 full-time equivalent (FTE) GP locum figures, we revised all affected locum figures in the General Practice Workforce September 2019 publication.
The September 2015 figures in this publication are no longer valid as they were calculated using the previous methodology and therefore have now been superseded.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 revised figures can be found on the General Practice Workforce September 2019 publication .
A detailed view of the General Practice workforce including GPs by type and practice staff. This was originally planned for publication on 30 March 2016 but was delayed due to operational reasons.
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.
The general practice data records numbers and details of GPs in England along with information on their practices, staff, patients, and the services they provide.
Time series data is available within the bulletin tables and more detailed information for September 2015 is available within the detailed results which includes data for England, by NHS England Regions, NHS England Area Teams and Clinical Commissioning Groups.
Practice level results are available within the Practice Level Indicator Tool and within the associated CSV file. Anonymised GP level results are also available in CSV file format.
This report is one of several publications presenting details of staff numbers within the NHS workforce. Links to these publications are at the bottom of the page.
We have invited user feedback on the estimation methodology. Any refinements to the methodology as a result of this feedback will be incorporated in revisions in the publication currently scheduled for September 2016.
