The overall headcount number of GP partners in England has fallen by almost 3,000 since former health secretary Jeremy Hunt promised in September 2015 to increase the GP workforce.
In September 2015, according to headcount figures published by NHS Digital, 24,521 of the 41,230 GPs working in England were partners - meaning 59% of GPs working at the time held partnership roles.
But by December 2018, the total number of GPs working as partners had fallen to 21,620 - just 49% of the 44,396 headcount figure for GPs working in England.
The drop in partner numbers over the period was 12% - while the total GP headcount population rose by nearly 8%. But partner numbers have fallen far more quickly in some parts of England - explore the heatmap below to find out how different areas are affected.
