CCG to recruit physician associates from USA to address GP shortages

Can't help feeling that the £600 000, would have been better invested in the local practices and training, there is no guarantee these people will stay even if we can find them a role. They might be able to fill out insurance reports, screen blood results and manage letters but a lot of this work is unnecessary anyway and some practices are better than others at delegating back office work. It's only appropriate for doctors to manage clinical risk.
