Can you avoid running it 40 times, maybe by restructuring the
query (or making a view) along the lines of the following and
adding some logic to your page?

SELECT p.partner_id, ug.user_group_id,, count(*)
  FROM partners p
       LEFT JOIN user_groups ug
              ON ug.partner_id=p.partner_id
       LEFT JOIN users u
 WHERE NOT u.deleted
 GROUP BY 1,2,3
