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The figures in this publication are no longer valid as they were calculated using the previous methodology and therefore have now been superseded.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 page at https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/general-and-personal-medical-services/final-30-september-2019.
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.
CHANGE NOTICE: Final GP Workforce data, incorporating up to date Electronic Staff Record (ESR) information, was previously released twice yearly. We will now be publishing this data quarterly, and the Final December 2017 data will be published alongside the Provisional March 2018 data.
Time series data is available within the bulletin tables and more detailed information for September 2017 is available within the detailed results, which includes data for England, Health Education England Region, NHS England Region, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Sustainability and Transformation Plans.
It includes an experimental interactive report which allows users to explore the underlying data in a variety of ways. We especially welcome your suggestions and feedback on this product.
