Statistical quality

These are extracted as a snapshot in time from the GP Payments system (Open Exeter) and are based on the main practice at which the GP is working each snapshot. Therefore some patients may move practice if a GP does more hours in one practice than another in a particular snapshot. The data in this differs to that in the spreadsheets which accompany the main statistical release. One difference is that the data are produced on a different day, this should make very little difference. The main difference is the allocation of patients to practices resulting in some variation.

Occasionally a practice may move to a different cluster. In this instance, the practice is reallocated against its new cluster for all time periods in the StatsWales data, including previous periods before the movement took place and would no longer appear against the cluster that it moved from. The composition of these clusters will therefore not be accurate for the time periods before the movement took place. All clusters affected by this issue are noted with an ‘i’ in the StatsWales data. The Newport North cluster is no longer shown in the data due to its closure in March 2020.
