The data, commissioned by the Liberal Democrats, has revealed that in some of the worst areas there is only one GP for almost 3,000 people – something being called a 'postcode lottery'.
On average, there is one fully trained GP per 2,038 people across the country – a five per cent rise since 2015.
The worst affected area in England is Fylde and Wyre in Lancashire, where there is 2,833 people per GP.
The best area for the number of people per GP is Liverpool, with 1,614.
