Less than 30% of GPs willing to employ physician assistants


Take yourself not as a GP but as a patient. If you were worried about your own health and rang your practice, where you are registered, asking for an appointment and were told you could only see a physicians assistant, would you be happy with this as you are concerned about possible differential diagnoses? No, me neither. And don't tell me you can always be transferred to the real GP - that's not how it may happen if the government pulls the con trick on patients of fobbing them off with a lesser service. (incidentally Anonymous | Salaried GP | 13 July 2015 9:45am should perhaps understand that not all doctors want to work full time. We do have a choice, you know! Stop sniping and think of what the real problems are in practices.)
