OBH can calculate precise figures for each these estimates using local data. Get in touch for more info:

CCG population sizes are based on NHS Digital data (Patients Registered at a GP Practice - June 2018 - released 12 Jun 2018).

Disclaimer: the figures on this page are estimates based on high-level user input data. If these inputs do not accurately reflect the local population, the estimated output will be incorrect. No responsibility is accepted for errors or omissions. The cost estimates are based on averages across large groups. There will be variation in costs between individuals within each group, which will have an impact on the true figures. These estimates assume that all other population characteristics are held constant (e.g. lifespan). This is based on the assumption that a natural ceiling in lifespan is being reached.
