GPs at the Deep End North East North Cumbria

All GP surgeries in England were ranked according to the % of their practice population who lived in the most deprived 15% of Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) datazones.

Deep End practices in the NENC were those whose practice population meant they were ranked in the lowest IMD decile nationally. This definition was expanded to include two practices who made up a Primary Care Network with a large cohort of Deep End patients and one practice that was an outlying area of rural deprivation.
