GPs to oversee all vulnerable patients under emergency admissions DES  


I am with David Lewis, it is a quirk of history that medical Professionals are the only professional group(apart from professional footballers as a colleague recently advised me) who do not have formal assistants in the model of practice. I am very interested in the University of Warwick Physician Assistant program, and I too think a redesign of our medical model of practice is needed. it is utterly unique that so much medical tasks have ended up being transferred to a Nursing Profession. Please do not take this as saying Nurse colleagues perform poorly, they do not , but they do start from a different professional value base and system of practice compared to a medical model.
