Data are extracted as a quarterly snapshot in time from the GP Payments system maintained by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). This release is an accurate snapshot as at 1 January 2015. Since April 2014, geographical references have been taken from 2011 census information.
At GP Practice level data are released in single year of age bands and 5-year age bands both of which finish at 95+, split by gender and aggregated.
At Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS England Area Team and NHS England Region levels, data are released in 5-year age bands which now finish at 95+, 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 are linked to other data sets.
Data for GP practices at Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) level are provided by gender but not by age bands so no suppression is required. An additional machine readable version is provided in practice / LSOA /totals format. Further information on LSOA is available via the link below.
