Numbers of Patients Registered at a GP Practice - April 2016
PLEASE NOTE: The future of this publication is under review and we are consulting on proposals to stop producing this quarterly report. If you would like the report to continue, then please submit a response to the consultation, referring to Annex D. See the related links section at the end of this page for a link to the consultation page.
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 April 2016.
Since April 2014, geographical references have been taken from 2011 census information.
GP level data are released in single year of age (SYOA) and 5-year age bands, both of which finish at 95+, split by gender and aggregated.
Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS England Region and NHS England Commissioning Region level data are released in 5-year age bands which now finish at 95+, split by gender and aggregated.
Unlike previous versions of this report, there is no suppression of data for practices with 100 or fewer registered patients.
An additional machine readable version is provided in practice/LSOA/totals format. Further information on LSOA is available via the link at the end of the page.
New Health Geography structure:
Please note that this publication reflects NHS England’s new health geography structure which became effective 1 April 2016: NHS England Area Teams have been replaced by NHS England Regions.
Furthermore, in addition to the 3-digit ODS codes, this report now includes the ONS 9-digit codes for each CCG, Region and Commissioning Region.
Extracted from HSCIC maintained GP Payments system.
Practices are matched to Organisational Data Services reference data.
