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The figures in this publication are no longer valid as they were calculated using the previous methodology and therefore have now been superseded.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.
A provisional view of GPs by type working in General Practice.
The general practice data records numbers and details of GPs in England. Time series data is available within the excel tables together with more detailed information for March 2017 data for England, by NHS England Regions, NHS England Region Local Offices, Clinical Commissioning Groups and practice.
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.
Note: This publication only includes information on GPs, other practice staff groups including Nurses are not included.
Given the classification of 'Provisional Experimental statistics' NHS Digital invited comments and feedback on the methodology applied which were reviewed over the summer and incorporated in revisions as part of this publication. Feedback is welcomed via email.
