A detailed view of the General Practice workforce including GPs by type and practice staff.

Due to the change in data source these statistics are provisional experimental, so care needs to be taken when interpreting these figures. More information on the effect of this change on the figures provided here can be found in the data quality section.

The general practice data records numbers and details of GPs in England along with information on their practices, staff, patients, and the services they provide. Time series data is available within the bulletin tables.

Practice level results are available within the Practice Level Indicator Tool and within the associated CSV file. Anonymised GP level results are also available in CSV file format.

Given the classification of ‘Provisional Experimental statistics’ NHS Digital invited comments and feedback on the methodology applied which were reviewed over the summer and incorporated in revisions as part of this publication. Feedback is welcomed via email.

Please email us with your comments and suggestions, clearly stating NHS Workforce as the subject heading, via or 0300 303 5678.
