Physician associates may be given prescribing powers, says DH

Comment

I thought it was a given that prescribing was in their job description.Otherwise what's the point.They'll end up queuing outside your door with prescription requests and just adding to the workload.Indemnity is crucial.They prescribe,they're responsible.You can't have GPs combing through all their cases.We have neither the time nor the manpower.
