To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average number of patients allocated to GP practice lists in the Havering primary care trust area is; how many GP practices have list sizes higher than the national average; which practices these are; and what the size of the list is in each case. [85077]

Information on the average number of patients allocated to general practitioner practice lists in the Havering primary care trust area are shown in the table.Overall, 44 of the 54 GP partnerships in Havering PCT have an average list size greater than the England average of 1,841. We are not able to provide information on which individual practices have list sizes higher than the national average and what the size of the list is in each case. The GP census data held by the Department are collected for the purposes of research and statistics, as defined by section 33 of the Data Protection Act 1998. As such, we are unable to release identifiable data on GPs where it is possible the data could be used for purposes other than research and statistics.
