We estimate SWGP is now the second largest employer of primary and community care staff in South Warwickshire after South Warwickshire Foundation Trust, following significant growth in SWGP-managed roles to support practices.

SWGP workforce

Our team includes almost 120 directly-employed staff (many of these being Primary Care Networks’ Additional Roles staff) and a further 100 contracted staff to support GP Plus, GP in Emergency Department, and more recently, COVID hot hubs and immunisation clinics.

Recruiting and managing this number of staff is time intensive but is far more efficient managed centrally, saving member practices considerable time and effort.

We achieve economies of scale and reduce duplication, offering seamless recruitment, induction and training, as well as broadening the career development opportunities available to our team.

Streamlining processes

For GP Plus, GP in Emergency Department and COVID Hot Hub services, we use Lantum – a web-based rostering and invoicing platform – to streamline timesheet administration and payments.

We have set up digital induction tools and videos, as well as central resources to enable our team to access the information they need quickly and efficiently, wherever they are based.
