The Department does not collect data on number of general practitioner (GP) surgeries by local authority area. However, data is available on number of GP practices (partnerships)—some of which operate from more than one surgery—broken down by national health service organisation.
Health authorities from 1997 to 2000;
Primary care groups in 2001; and
Primary care trusts from 2002 onwards (which were reconfigured in 2006).
Such information as is available has been placed in the Library.
