Table 5 Example of step 4 of the baseline model (scenario 0): General Practitioners in the Netherlands

From: Ten years of health workforce planning in the Netherlands: a tentative evaluation of GP planning as an example

Part of model Calculation
Difference between supply and demand As seen earlier, the total required supply in 2019 is 7,807 FTE, while the total available supply in 2019 is 8,187 FTE. This means that if the baseline model is applied, there will be an oversupply in 2019 of 380 FTE.
Future inflow in training To correct this oversupply, the model calculates that the future number of GPs in training per year should be decreased from 614 to 476.
