If GPs gave practice nurses better training and support, they could transform primary care


Excellent vision for the future. Just as long as "making the most of the workforce" doesn't mean getting nurses to do as much as possible for as little pay as possible. Pay, terms, and conditions vary widely and standardisation is also needed to help to transform the service. Most doctors are good employers but ,for your ideas to have maximum impact and be available to all patients, a standard contract for practice nurses would avoid disparity in the future and attract more applicants.
