CCG to recruit physician associates from USA to address GP shortages


600,000K for 10 PAs - that's 60,000/PA Not sure if this is over 3 years (the article seems to suggest so), so £20,000/PA/year Seems to be about the same as (ok, a little cheaper when you consider on costs) full time HCA. Can they do more then a decent HCA? Mine does everything from taking bloods, ECG, BP, 24 hour BP, Spirometry, lifestyle advice, urine dip, resus trolly check, stock cupboard and PPA claims.
