Patients Registered at GP Practice by Age Group and Gender

$79 / year

This dataset comprises the number of patients registered at each General Practioner (GP) Practice, in 5-year age bands and split by gender. It includes organization type and code, postcode, gender and the number of patients belonging to different age groups.

Complexity

The Organization Data Service (ODS) is provided by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). It is responsible for the publication of all organization and practitioner codes and national policy and standards with regard to the majority of organization codes, and encompasses the functionality and services previously provided by the National Administrative Codes Service (NACS).

GP Practices with 100 or fewer registered patients have been suppressed due to possible identification of individuals when data is linked to other data sets. Demographic data is extracted as a quarterly snapshot in time from the GP Payments system maintained by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). Data is collected at an aggregate level of each GP practice so it cannot be used to look at specific patient information.

The data presents the GP Practices broken down by the number of registered patients within each Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) area.
The number of registered patients split into age bands. They can be shown at national, CCG or GP practice level and the ability to compare practices against one another by selecting the ones of interest.
The data extracted from GP practices are matched to the Organizational Data Services (ODS) reference data and mapped to the health geography structure that was in place at the time of extraction. The publications include data on:

– GP Practices broken down by the number of registered patients within each CCG area.
– 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 before January 2016 is suppressed for practices with less than 100 patients.
