Less than 30% of GPs willing to employ physician assistants

Comment

I think the NHS is turning in to a pile of crap. Primary care needs well trained GPS not nursed phs assistants pharmacists or F2s. Not only will they provide a second rate service they will degrade the quality of primary care and they will undermine Amy chance we have of getting a better deal as GPS. They will be another means of undercutting is to keep us on bus driver money only working more hours. In actual fact maybe not because 40k for 40 hour week may be more per hour than some sale red GPS get. I do feel that practices getting involved in this just to get an Emis upgrade are doing the profession a disservice and another example of GPs throwing themselves under the bus for a few pennies :(
