350 fewer GPs than 2015 despite promises of 5,000 more by 2020


Can Pulse re publish their article on how NHS digital calculate their figures? Because my suspicion is that NHS digitial are being a little bit generous in how they are calculating the numbers and unless that changes the extent of the crisis is being hidden. As I now see data from lots of practices - our data suggests very substantial falls in practicing clinical GPs which are not reflected in these numbers. NHS Digitals figures don't add up!
