Physician associates may be given prescribing powers, says DH


@above So what if there are no jobs for GPs.Doctors should be working in hospitals where the really sick are.That's where they add value.Not signing sicknotes or sorting out verrucas and fungal toes.It's a complete waste of the country's resources to have them dealing with the unadulterated crap that constitutes general practice.It's no wonder they end up becoming deskilled and demoralised.The only reason why the youngsters are still choosing it is that it offers the opportunity to work part time.Once you remove that there is nothing to commend it.And at the end of the day the British public will get the health service that it deserves.Now they always find something to complain about GPs.Well they've got their wish because most of us will have packed our bags and left.
