As a team of workforce analysts and academics with an interest in workforce planning, we are aware that the
data available to support primary care workforce planning are disorganised and overwhelming. This makes it
difficult for General Practice to extract meaningful and relevant information. We deliver workforce planning
workshops across England. Participants at our workshops regularly express their frustration with the quantity
of information they are required to produce and the quality of information they receive from other parts of
the system. We are dismayed at what we sense to be growing cynicism with data generation and information
analysis and are interested in stimulating a conversation about what data matter and how primary care teams
can extract data that are useful
