CCG to recruit physician associates from USA to address GP shortages


The CCG said the physician associates will not be able to prescribe but they ‘will be able to take on a substantial amount’ of clinical work now being done by GPs’. What planet????? And I presume the CCG is run by GPs too....Please tell me which bit of clinical work I do, that doesn't at some point involve prescribing??
