The latest available data shows that as at 30 September 2021, there were 847 full time equivalent doctors in general practice working in the Black Country and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). This CCG was established on 1 April 2021 following the merger of Dudley CCG, Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG, Walsall CCG and Wolverhampton CCG. The data is not held for Walsall South as general practice workforce figures are not collected by constituency.
