Family Practitioner Services (FPS) Statistics for Northern Ireland – Quarterly Series to Q2 2018/19 has been published today.
This quarterly series, produced in accordance with the Code of Practice for Statistics, is a subset of the annual information with data provided for certain key tables relating to GP, Pharmacy, Dental and Ophthalmic activity within the Northern Ireland FPS. The quarterly updates within a year should be treated as provisional and may be revised when figures are finalised to produce the end of year annual report.

The Family Practitioner Services Statistics for Northern Ireland 2017/18 report which was published on the 30th October 2018 contained a series showing the number of Ophthalmic Practitioners in Northern Ireland across each of the last 9 years. A data quality issue in respect of this information has been brought to our attention and upon investigation it has been decided that the figures in the report needed to be revised. A note to this effect has been added to our website highlighting which sections of the report and tables have been impacted.
