Provision of information on general practice access data

The next bi-annual extended access collection will open for submissions from 1 September 2017 to 29 September 2017 inclusive.

As set out in the 2016 regulations, every GP practice in England will be required to submit an online return twice a year through the primary care web tool. This will set out what access to appointments the practice offers to patients either itself or through other arrangements, over evenings and weekends.

A separate data collection for the workforce census workforce minimum data set (wMDS) which captures workforce information by practice will occur at the beginning of October. Contact  enquiries@nhsdigital.nhs.uk for queries about the NHS Digital workforce census.
