Numbers of Patients Registered at a GP Practice - July 2016
IMPORTANT: The original version of this publication contained an error which has now been corrected.
The incorrect data were available between 19 July 2016 and 23 Aug 2016. The error affected the following tables:
· Numbers of Patients Registered at a GP Practice – July 2016: LSOA
· Numbers of Patients Registered at a GP Practice – July 2016: LSOA Female
· Numbers of Patients Registered at a GP Practice – July 2016: LSOA Male
· Numbers of Patients Registered at a GP Practice – July 2016: Totals by LSOA, Alternative format (vertical list)
The LSOA codes used were taken from the 2001 LSOA list rather than the 2011 LSOA list, as stated in the metadata. Overall patient counts were unaffected by this error, only the assignment of LSOA codes.
The tables were replaced with corrected data tables on 23 Aug 2016, the file names of the corrected csv tables end in ‘_V2’.
PLEASE NOTE: Following the consultation on the proposal to stop producing this report, it has been confirmed that this report will continue to be produced by HSCIC. The format in which it will continue is yet to be finalised.
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 July 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.
