The request was successful.

Dear Welsh Government,

Could you please provide me with the following information as an excel spreadsheeet.

1) A breakdown of the number of GPs in the different counties of Wales over the past 10 years.

2) A breakdown of where Welsh GPs trained - what University they studied medicine at?

3) A breakdown of the number of 'Trainee GPs' in the different counties of Wales over the past 10 years?

4) A breakdown of the number of years GPs stay in Wales for after they come to train in Wales, broken down by county?

Yours faithfully,

Rachel Evans

Welsh Government

Dear Rachel,

Thank you for your enquiry.

We are dealing with the request as business as usual rather than as FoI as we publish some of the information already. This does not change the handling of the request – i.e we will still supply any information we hold in line with FoI and to the same timescales.

Your requests for points 1 and 3 are already publically available but given a bit of time, we can amalgamate this information into one spreadsheet for you.

Point 2 we are unable to do as we do not hold data on where the GP attended University.

Similarly we are unable to help with point 4 as we do not hold data on where GPs trained.

In the meantime, you can find all of our published data and releases here: General medical practitioners (GP) - http://gov.wales/statistics-and-research...

Many thanks,

Rhys
