NHS Digital: 2017 data extraction timetable for general practice workforce data

The 2017 data extraction timetable for general practice workforce data has changed from a bi-annual collection to a quarterly extraction.

The move to a quarterly cycle will enable Health Education England, NHS England and the Department of Health to access more frequent and timely information. The initial quarterly data extraction took place in January 2017. Practices will no longer need to submit data, but are asked to keep their records up to date on the Primary Care Web Tool (PCWT) or Health Education England (HEE) collection tools from which NHS Digital or the HEE region will extract the data.
