Data in this report is extracted from the GP Payments system, which is maintained by NHS Digital and is extracted on a quarterly snapshot basis.

Data in this report is extracted from the GP Payments system, which is maintained by NHS Digital and is extracted on a quarterly snapshot basis.

The GP practices extracted are matched to the Organisational Data Services reference data and mapped to the health geography structure that was in place at the time of extraction.

The publication includes data on:

  • General Practice data at single and 5 year age bands which ends at 95+ both split by gender and aggregated
  • health geographic data by 5 year age bands which end at 95+ split by gender and aggregated
  • Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) data

The data is extracted at an aggregated level and so cannot be used to identify individual patients.

Data prior to January 2016  is suppressed for practices with less than 100 patients.

Data at LSOA level is only available from January 2014 onwards.

This data also forms part of the General Practice Data Hub.
