Defence personnel NHS commissioning statistics: index

Bi-annual statistics on the number of serving UK armed forces personnel and civilian personnel with a Defence Medical Services registration.

Following a public consultation during April and June 2017, this publication has been reduced from quarterly to bi-annual.

The NHS Commissioning Population biannual statistics: 1 April 2018 due to be published on 24 May 2018 will contain changes to the Defence Primary Healthcare (DPHC) regional breakdown. This is to reflect a new regional structure for Defence Medical Services, where the number of UK regions has been reduced from nine to eight and some MOD medical centres are now assigned to a new region. This will only impact on the figures presented in the DPHC regional analysis and the overall figures will not be affected.

Upcoming release dates for this publication are available here.
