Tonypandy GP's long-term recruitment worries

Trainee GPs are to be offered a £20,000 bonus to work in parts of Wales where it is proving hard to attract and keep family doctors.

The deal would tie in the trainees to a placement and working in an area for one year.

A one-off £2,000 payment will also be offered to help trainee GPs cover the cost of their final exams.

Dr Gwyndaf Williams, a doctor in Tonypandy, Rhondda Cynon Taff, told BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke he worried for the long-term future of general practice.
