GP Practice; Sustainability and transformation partnership (STP); Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG); NHS England Region and NHS England Commissioning Region level data are released in single year of age (SYOA) and 5-year age bands, both of which finish at 95+, split by gender. In addition, organisational mapping data is available to derive STP; CCG; Region and Commissioning Region associated with a GP practice and is updated each month to give relevant organisational mapping.
