A planned primary care workforce for Wales

The plan gives details about the further development of the primary care workforce in Wales and the actions that need to be taken by a range of delivery partners to secure, manage and support a sustainable workforce shaped by local population needs and by prudent healthcare principles.

The document sets out 4 main areas where action is needed:

  1. putting in place the foundations for a more robust approach to workforce planning
  2. supporting the continuing development of primary care clusters and the sharing of best practice
  3. investing in the development of the wider primary care workforce
  4. stabilising key sections of the current workforce.
