      Doctors in Nottinghamshire see more than twice as many patients as the average for England, new NHS data shows.

      Data provided by the Integrated Care Board (ICB), which commissions general practice to provide primary medical services, shows that, in total, 644,260 appointments were made in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire as of November 2022.

      But the England average for the same period was 294,614 citations.

      The ICB has shared the data with Nottinghamshire County Council ahead of the health scrutiny committee meeting on February 21.

      At the meeting, heads of healthcare, including Lucy Dadge, the ICB’s director of integration, will speak to councillors.

      The documents indicate that the local NHS system has been under “unprecedented pressure” recently with critical incidents in July 2022, September 2022 and December 2022.

      But the council says access to GP services is a “recurring issue raised by residents”.
