Annual practice level information

For annual information on GP practice populations with demographics please refer to data table 6,7 and 8 in the most recent publication of General Practice - GP Workforce and Practice Population Statistics.

Out of Hours Services

GP practices can 'opt in' to provide Out of Hours services for their patients; this is most common in remote or rural areas. Out of Hours services for all other patients are provided directly by each NHS Board. Information on the number of GP practices who provide Out of Hours services for their patients is now hosted on the Emergency Care section of the ISD website.
