General and Personal Medical Services, England: Final 30 June and Provisional 30 September 2018, experimental statistics

Official statistics


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The figures in this publication are no longer valid as they were calculated using the previous methodology and therefore have now been superseded.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

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 June 2018, along with provisional September 2018 data. Final September 2018 data will be available in the December 2018 publication.

Change Notice: From the September 2018 collection, the source for GP Registrars (foundation and specialty registrar trainees on placements in General Practice) has changed. The new data source is the Health Education England (HEE) Trainee Information System (TIS).

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.

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.
