Metadata

General description

Assignment count and Full-time equivalent of directly employed NHS staff by grade and area of work. General Medical and Dental Practitioners are excluded as they are independent NHS contractors.

Data collection and calculation

Extracted from the NHS Electronic Staff Record system. Staff groups and areas of work are determined from NHS occupational codes - see linked manual for more detail.

NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership (NWSSP) became the lead employer for General Practice (Doctors in Training only) from 2015 onwards. Previously GPs in training who rotated into a GP surgery would be employed by the surgery and therefore leave the NHS Wales payroll. Now NWSSP keeps continuous employment and these figures are shown against Velindre NHS Trust, which hosts NWSSP. In addition to these, GP trainees who are on hospital rotations are recorded under the specialty of their current role against Velindre NHS trust from 2015 until 31 March 2021, and under NWSSP from 1 April 2021. Previously these trainees were recorded against the Local Health Boards (LHBs) which hosted the trainee. As a result the numbers recorded against the LHBs in the relevant specialties have fallen.
