Patients registered at a GP Practice Metadata

Data from Patients Registered at a GP Practice is made available in comma-separated variable (CSV) files, to allow users to carry out their own analyses.

This page provides structural metadata, which describe the contents of each field within the CSV files. It should be read in conjunction with the data quality statement as this will provide further details on any data quality issues that should be considered when interpreting results of analyses.
