Description:
At present we have no way of knowing precisely how many General Practitioners are in practice in this country, how many are in training or how many intend to pursue a career in general practice. The body best positioned to collate this information would be the Medical Council, as the legal requirement for registration prior to engaging in the practice of medicine I and annually thereafter, will ensure a high degree of accuracy . Much of this information may be available from the Council on computer in the near future. While the total number of General Practitioners in active, full - time practice may not be known accurately, it is possible, by drawing from the records of various bodies, to make an approximation to the overall numbers. (Table 1). From these figures it appears that the total number of doctors engaged in any type of general practice, full or part- time, is close to 2,200. A considerable number of these will be part time, or if full-time, under-employed. An approximate breakdown of these 2,200 General Practitioners is given in Table 2. A more accurate estimate of the numbers in each sub- group outside the G.M.S. is urgently required , as these General Practitioners comprise almost one- third of the total general practice workforce. The records of the Medical Council, when fully computerised, may allow the numbers in 'each group to be accurately estimated, but only if full declaration of the nature of the practice is a requirement for remaining on the register.
