PLEASE NOTE: Following the consultation on the proposal to stop producing this report, it has been confirmed that this report will continue to be produced by NHS Digital. This is the first time this publication has been released in a new format and on a monthly basis. In addition, quarterly publications will include a topic of interest. This quarter the topic of interest is Office for National Statistics (ONS) population estimates compared to GP registration data using a population pyramid.

Data are extracted each month as a snapshot in time from the GP Payments system maintained by NHS Digital. This release is an accurate snapshot as at 1 April 2017.

Since April 2014, geographical references have been taken from 2011 census information.

GP Practice; Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG); NHS England Region and NHS England Commissioning Region level data are released in single year of age (SYOA) and 5-year age bands, both of which finish at 95+, split by gender.

Additional guidance has been included in this publication to show how the new datasets can be used.
