- The data in the response includes appointments with all healthcare professional types, including general practitioners (GPs) and other practice staff.
- Monthly appointment totals are affected by seasonality and the number of working days in a month. For this reason, we use 12-month totals comparisons over time.
- The January 2020 publication included data from over 95.8% of GP practices, covering over 96.5% of all registered patients and all clinical commissioning groups. Data from all four main system suppliers - EMIS, TPP, Microtest and Vision - are included in the publication.
- The publication draws on responses from practices that use management information systems supplied by the four main GP information system providers in England. Between them, these supply approximately 95% of the systems in use in England.
