Physician assistants? This Government hasn't a clue
I read with interest your article on physicians assistants (News, February 9).
I work as a clinician in primary care, following the completion of an MSc which taught history taking, clinical examination skills and diagnostics as part of the qualification.
I currently perform all of the roles described in your article and I do prescribe. I am a nurse and I unfortunately do not earn £40,000.
There are many of us performing assistants' roles in primary care, which we enjoy and are happy that we do not have the additional responsibilities and stresses that GPs face.
I feel the Government consistently demonstrates is hasn't got a clue what is going on in health care.
