GENERAL PRACTICE DATA ON APPOINTMENTS
1 December 2022
NHS England have released General practice data, it contains data on appointments that have taken place in general practice in England. It contains details on who the appointment was with, mode, appointment status and time between when the appointment was booked and took place.
The aim of the publication is to inform users about activity and usage of GP appointments historically and how primary care is impacted by seasonal pressures, such as winter.
The publication includes important information, however it does not show the totality of GP activity/workload.
The data presented only contains information which was captured on the GP practice systems. This limits the activity reported on and does not represent all work happening within a primary care setting or assess the complexity of activity.
From October 2022 this publication includes additional practice level breakdowns which can be found in the Resources section at the end of this page.
