Data indicates patients registered with practices by Health Board and Local Authority as at 1 October for each year presented. Since the introduction of the new GP contract (the General Medical Services contract) on 1 April 2004, patients register with a practice rather than a specific GP. GPs and practices have been allocated to one area based on the postcode of the main practice premises. However, practices may also operate branch surgeries from other locations and these locations may sit within a different area to that of the main practice premises. Practices in one area may provide care for patients living in another area. This is particularly likely where practices are located close to a boundary between areas, and/or where a practice operates one or more branch surgeries. Data Source for General Practice list sizes: GMS warehouse, Information Services Division, NHS National Services Scotland. Further information on GP workforce and practice populations in Scotland is available on the ISD Website
