Data is extracted as a quarterly snapshot in time from the GP Payments system maintained by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). This release was extracted on 1 January 2014 so will be up to close of play on 31 December 2013.
At GP Practice, Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS England Area Team and NHS England Region levels data is released in 5-year age bands, split by gender and aggregated.
For the above reports the data for GP Practices with 100 or fewer registered patients has been suppressed due to possible identification of individuals when data is linked to other data sets.
Data for GP practices at Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) level is provided by gender but not by age bands so no suppression is required. Further information on LSOA is available via the link below.
