  • The ONS Migration Indicators Tool shows that the number of new GP registrations by international migrants had been reducing over the last few years from a high of 1,229 (6.1 per 1,000 population) in 2008 to 781 (3.9 per 1,000) in 2013. However, in 2014, 2015 and 2016 the number of GP registrations by international migrants increased. In 2016 there were 1,250 (6.2 per 1,000). [1] Over this period the England average had a similar pattern, reducing slightly from 11.3 GP registrations by international migrants per 1,000 population in 2008 to 10.9 per 1,000 in 2013, but increasing to 12.9 in 2016.
  • In 2016 there were 843 National Insurance Number (NINo) registrations in Gateshead. [2] NINo registrations are made when someone moves into the country and wants to begin work. More than two thirds (68%) of these registrations originated with people from the European Union, and 20% were from Asia and the Middle East. NINo registrations hit a high point in 2007 when there were 1,069 registrations. Since then the number of registrations has gradually declined, hitting as low as 526 in 2012. However, the last few years have seen a resurgence of registrations, with 608 in 2013, 747 in 2014, and 828 in 2015.
