Headline

'New deal': 1,000 new physicians associates by 2020

Comment

Okay , so basically they are going to bring in a large number of physician associates to gradually start replacing locum amd salaried GP's .I suspect eventually majority of practices will be run by a few partners delegating and overseeing the work to these physician associates . In this way the government will alleviate the pressure on themselves to train up more expensive GPs.I guess the GP partners will be carrying the risk for all the decisions these PA's make as well . Sounds fun.
