GPWales

By GPs, for GPs; Support for every practice in every way.


How did GPWales Start?

For some time now, there has been a shortage of GPs across Wales. Despite this, there isn’t an easy to use website that advertises all these jobs in one place. Ellis and his wife Rachel soon realized this when they were both looking for GP Jobs within driving distance of their home just outside Abergavenny. They are both now working as GPs within 6 miles of their home, but like many others, they didn’t find these jobs online, but through word of mouth and calling practices one by one.

They mentioned these frustrations to their colleague in a different Practice, Francine. She introduced them to her husband TJ a Website and Project Manager and GPWales was born.

The Plan

After speaking with Practice Managers, Partners, Salaried Doctors and GP Registrars and other staff across Wales, we felt there were 3 key areas where we could help:
Jobs, Locums and achieving value for money.

We prioritised into three distinct projects and started with a Job site to;

  • Advertise every job in general practice (Doctors / Nurses / Receptionist etc.) in one place
  • Make jobs easy to find, search by location and compare
  • Display job adverts on a map
  • Allow job adverts to stay online until they are filled
  • Allow individuals to apply online
  • Allow practices to manage the applications online
  • Be a free service for all to use

With support from NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership and funding from the Welsh Government, we have created a simple to use website that you have asked for.

We hope it will benefit every doctor and GP Practice in Wales, by saving time and money.

This is just the beginning; we have many more ideas and developments in the pipeline.
