General description

This shows the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) fully qualified GPs per 10,000 population by local health board, at every quarterly snapshot date since 31-Dec-21.

Data collection and calculation

Fully qualified GPs includes partners, providers, salaried, retainers and locum GPs only.

Rates are based on the FTEs and the ONS mid-year population estimates. The population data relates to the same year as the workforce data: this means that the latest published rates for 31 March, 30 June and 30 September are based on the previous year’s population estimates and will be revised using the population estimates for the subsequent year in the next statistical release.

Locums are counted if they had any work recorded through Locum Hub Wales at any point during the quarter ending in the snapshot date only. For all the other GP types, it is based on the FTE as at the snapshot date.

The Wales National Workforce Reporting System (WNWRS) provides a secure web based tool developed to capture information on staff working in general practices in Wales.

In broad terms, the system works by practice managers inputting details of their staff onto the system, confirming the details every quarter. Data is then extracted on the last day of each quarter (March, June, September, December). NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership (NWSSP) perform validations to improve data quality before anonymised data are shared with Welsh Government statisticians to validate further and produce these official statistics.

Data from other sources supplement the data from WNWRS, these include:
• Locum Hub Wales (LHW): number of locums working in practices during the quarter up to the snapshot date.
