GP Practice Profiles

In 2017 there were 81 GP practices in Gloucestershire. The GP practices are overseen by the Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning group (CCG). The geographical area covered by the CCG is coterminous with the county boundary. The CCG is split into seven GP Localities; Cheltenham, Forest, Gloucester, North Cotswold, South Cotswold, Stroud & Berkeley Vale and Tewkesbury. These differ from the district boundaries. Data in these profiles are presented by GP Locality in order to inform service planning and in recognition that individuals may not necessarily be resident in the same locality in which their GP Practice is located. Each locality has a GP liaison lead sitting on the CCG Governing Body and a Locality Executive Group where ‘local’ decisions can be made.

All 81 practices have been aggregated into 9 taxonomy groups using the most common age group, deprivation level and prevalence of disease of their registered patients.

Data presented in these profiles are based on GP Practice disease registers (maintained under the Quality and Outcomes Framework).

Prevalence is a measure of the recorded frequency of a disease or health condition in a population at a particular point in time. Recorded prevalence depends on a number of factors:

  • Individuals need to be registered
  • Present with symptoms
  • Receive diagnosis
  • The diagnosis has to be recorded and added to the register

The profiles are presented for the following topics: cancer, circulatory diseases, diabetes and chronic kidney disease, mental health conditions and dementia, musculoskeletal conditions, respiratory conditions, and wider determinants - lifestyle and deprivation.
