Dear colleague

Further to our previous email we would like to update you regarding the Wales National Workforce reporting System and GMPI.

We understand the frustrations of the timescale for the requested upload of data onto the WNWRS and would like to note that during our discussions we had advised the need for at least a 4 week window to enable practices to upload data given the pressures practices are facing every day - this unfortunately was not taken on board with one reason given that practices were clamouring to use the tool! 

Please also note that we have received confirmation from SSP that all practice staff will be covered under GMPI who work in connection with the provision of a relevant function which include:

(a) arranging for the provision of services for the purposes of the health service;

(b) providing services for the purposes of the health service;

(c) exercising functions in relation to the health service;

(d) providing primary medical services

We believe this means all staff should be included in this as all are involved with patient issues / data under a GMS contract.

If you do not wish to be covered by the state backed GMPI scheme then you need to advise SSP of this AND ensure that you source comprehensive indemnity cover for all the practice team. In addition please note GSUM has been taken by WG from every Welsh practice to provide this cover but obviously it is a practice decision as to what you decide to do.

Should you have any queries please direct to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
