In 2016 the Welsh government offered a Â£20,000 incentive to junior doctors that trained as GPâs in the areas which have shortages.
The incentive has seen a 16% increase in the number of junior doctors selecting to come to or stay in wales to train to become GPâs.
Recent figures have shown that 84% of an available 136 doctor positions have been filled and over a decade there has been a 7% increase in the number of GPâs who have chosen to work in Wales.
Health Secretary Vaughan Gething said that the figures âspeak for themselvesâ and show âthe campaign has been a successâ
Despite the success of this campaign, Rebecca Payne, chair of the Royal College of GPâs said âWales actually needs to produce 200 new GPâs a year, so itâs clear that we have a long way to goâ
