There have been changes to the NHS England and Improvement regional structure since this release. From 1st July 2022, Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) were established as statutory bodies replacing CCGs and STPs. From the Primary Care Network Workforce, 30 June 2022 publication, data is instead aggregated to Sub-ICB Location, and ICB level. These geography updates also involved boundary changes, with some Primary Care Networks (PCNs) moving to different Sub-ICB Locations and ICBs than they would previously have been situated.
In order to have a consistent and comparable time series at regional level, Individual-level CSVs for all periods back to March 2020 were reproduced as part of the 30 June 2022 release, with PCNs and Sub-ICB Locations remapped to reflect this latest structure. National totals are unaffected by this remapping but some figures at Sub-ICB (previously CCG) and ICB (previously STP) levels may differ to those previously published.
The regional bulletin tables 2a and 2b presented here reflect the old structure. Therefore, users are encouraged to use the remapped CSV files released with the 30 June 2022 publication for historical regional primary care network workforce figures.
