GP practice data available to patients and professionals

The publication of GP practice data aims to provide the public with information on services they access on a regular basis, enabling individuals to make informed choices and decisions.

GP practices are usually the main or first port of call for patients seeking health care advice or treatment within the NHS.

Publishing this data will enable patients, academics, data intermediaries and other organisations to identify relationships and make comparisons, enabling more informed choices. Patients can access some of the data in a user friendly format on the NHS Choices website, through GP practice profiles.  Data intermediaries and NHS organisations are able to access the raw data, in a spreadsheet format through the NHS Information Centre indicator portal. A more user friendly tool to enable patients to make comparisons across all practices will be delivered by April 2012.
