Primary Care Workforce Data

Here you will find the latest Primary Care Workforce Data in the form of downloadable spreadsheets.

The source of this data is NHS Digital General Practice Workforce Official Data which is extracted from NWRS (National Workforce Reporting Service) which can be accessed here

Please note:

  • This data is submitted on a monthly basis by each practice and is only as up to date as what is reported
  • DPC stands for: Direct Patient Care. This category includes the following roles:
    • Healthcare Assistants
    • Pharmacists
    • Dispensers
    • Phlebotomists
    • Paramedics
    • Pharmacy Technicians

  • In the spreadsheet, the number of FTE staff for each practice are added up for the PCN totals, these PCN totals do not include the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) roles who are employed at a PCN level
  • It is important to note that GPs, GPNs and DPC roles all see and treat patients. Many of the DPC roles are first contact practitioners (physiotherapists, paramedics, dietitians, podiatrists and occupational therapists) and thus increase the appointment capacity of a practice.
