asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the July census date for general practitioner practices disadvantages general practitioners who operate student health services on or near campuses, given that students finishing their courses will have been removed from the general practitioner lists; and, if so, how they propose to make an adjustment to compensate for this adverse effect.

As part of the new contract for general medical services, primary care practices will receive a proportion of their income related to the size of their practice list. The payments that relate to practice list size will be updated every three months based on data collected on practice lists at the beginning of the quarter. This means that practices that keep their practice lists up to date should not be disadvantaged.
