Hello,

We are sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

We are not planning on linking our data to the GP workforce data as (i) we don't think it is possible to link the datasets at an individual level (ii) even if it were possible we are not sure of the value to data users as you know the occupation and industry of adult respondents. But we may be misunderstanding your query so if you tell us why you want the survey data to be linked to this dataset and provide specifics such as which variables and at what level (i.e., at local LSOA or MSOA level) then I will forward your request to the data linkage team.

Best wishes,
Understanding Society User Support Team

Thank you for letting me know. I asked this query because I am interested in exploring wider determinants of health at the practice level. There were some variables in the GP workforce data that I had come across which were interesting. However, I'll work with the data that is currently available. Thank you.
