Dr Charlotte Jones, Chair BMA Cymru Wales GP Committee, said:
"We welcome the increase in the overall figures but they don't tell us if it means additional capacity in the workforce. The increase in figures could suggest that the Work, Train, Work Live campaign is starting to show dividends. We need to build on this and address the reasons why doctors don't want to go straight into partnerships. We also need to address workload pressures and other challenges facing partners to enable us to have a workforce that is fit and sustainable for the future."
