National Workforce Reporting System

The National Workforce Reporting System is run by NHS Digital to collect and present Primary Care workforce based data.
The System is made up of two modules accessible at
The data entry module is an update of the former workforce census module, which is where general practices can add their workforce information, to fulfil their requirements for the workforce Minimum Data Set (wMDS).
The reporting module contains a suite of reports containing published, non-identifiable, GP workforce data supplied by GP practices. Functionality of the module includes:

  • Ability to tailor reports to the user requirements, based on, staff group, job role, age and gender.
  • Access to data for each census back to September 2015
  • Downloadable charts and supporting data
  • Data quality reports to quickly, and easily, identify practices with data quality issues

Users of the Primary Care Web Tool who require access to the National Workforce Reporting System should register to use the service by clicking here. Your practice permissions should migrate with you when you create a new user account.
