Metadata

Statistical quality

Note that locums are not required to enter their ethnicity when recording work through Locum Hub Wales, and therefore account for a large proportion of fully qualified GPs with unknown information.

A number of practices did not confirm their WNWRS data as being up-to-date in the quarter up to each snapshot date. See the statistical release for more information.


General description

This shows the number of (headcount and full-time equivalent) fully qualified GPs employed in general practices by ethnicity, at every quarterly snapshot date since 30-Jun-21.

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 headcount 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.
