Number of GPsLeeds PCT518 Notes:1. Figures are not available at constituency level. Leeds West is contained within and served by Leeds PCT.2. Data include all GPs who were attached to an active GP Practice on 30 September 2008. The annual GP census does not contain data on NHS walk-in centres, asylum seeker and refugee health centres or homeless shelters, where GPs may also be practising on a part-time or locum basis.3. GP Locums are not included in the data.4. Work force statistics are compiled from data sent by more than 300 national health service trusts and PCTs in England. The Information Centre for health and social care liaises closely with these organisations to encourage submission of complete and valid data and seeks to minimise inaccuracies and the effect of missing and invalid data. Processing methods and procedures are continually being updated to improve data quality. Where this happens any impact on figures already published will be assessed but unless this is significant at national level they will not be changed. Where there is impact only at detailed or local level this will be footnoted in relevant analyses.Source:The Information Centre for health and social care—general and personal medical services statistics
