"Anonymous | GP Partner | 07 July 2015 10:06am This will be seen by medical students as a further round of undermining general practice . It will make Primary care seem - medicine lite . It may be that PA's are excellent prescribers but why bother with the slog through medical school. Perception and image is very important - that's why billions are spent on advertising . I predict there will be a massive drop in recruitment for gp's" that's a good point. why spend 10 years of your life and 5 figures of money to be a glorified nurse.
