1. South East Essex PCT was created on 1 October 2006 from a complete merger of Castle Point and Rochford PCT and Southend-on-Sea PCT.

2. Figures prior to 2006 are an aggregate of these predecessor organisations. It is impossible to map workforce figures for these organisations prior to the creation of the PCTs in 2002.

3. Figures provided show numbers of patients registered with a GP as at 30 September each year. Data on patient transactions or newly registered patients are not available on the annual GP census.
