The NHS Information Centre has updated the latest findings from last years 'Trends in Consultation Rates in General Practice' publication (published 30th September 2008) to include data from 2008-2009.

The information is presented in two separate reports: one for the calendar years 1995-2008 and one for the financial years 1995/1996 to 2008/2009.

This is the last report in a planned series to be published by the NHS Information Centre.


  • describes the population and practices contributing to the analysis in terms of geographical location, list size and overall age-sex structure
  • analyses trends in consultations by age and sex over each of the last 14 years
  • estimates changes in the number of consultations nationally and for the typical general practice
  • describes the pattern of consultations according to type of health profession (for example, GP or nurse)
  • report on patterns of consultations according to where the consultation took place (home visit, telephone or in the surgery).
