Practice List Size and GP Count is a quarterly report. Reports are available from Quarter January 2014 and will be updated each quarter to include 24 months of reports.
Quarter January 2014 through to January 2015 the report will include PCO List Size and GP count. This will be separated into a new report with effect from Quarter April 2015.
The information NHSBSA Prescription Services hold on practices is supplied to NHSBSA Prescription Services by Primary Care Organisations (PCOs), which include CCGs, Local Authorities, Commissioning Hubs (Until Nov 14) and provider organisations
Dispensing List size shows the number of patients registered with a doctor who receive both medical services and dispensing services from their doctor. Please note not all patients registered with a dispensing doctor are eligible to receive dispensing services.
Prescribing list size shows the number of patients registered with a doctor who receive medical services only.
Some of the "Practices" listed in the information are not traditional practices. They are other services which the PCO has set up as a practice ie specialist units or out of hours services These non-traditional practices do not have a patient list size or may not have a dedicated GP working for them. In these situations the PCO may supply arbitrary numbers such as 1, 2, 50 etc.
Practices which have closed during the period will be included in the report.
Totals for patient list sizes provided at practice level may differ from total for patient list sizes at PCO level due to changes being applied to practice list sizes during the quarter. Practice list sizes are different if they are not run for the last day in the month of the quarter.
