Trial admin assistants and paramedics to reduce GP workload, says landmark review


The future of General practice...get paramedics, physician assistants, pharmacists, nurses to do all the work. This is a well planned move. Government knows that thye can get all the primary care work done by other staff. In the meantime partnerships will be finished. Salaries will come down and there will be few GPs working at low wages. Intelligent ones will make a move and go to abroad( while the sun is shining there). We are not going to get anyone from India/Pakistan this time because the word seems to have spread all over that the General Practice in UK is not worth applying for. I don't see things improving. Salaries throughout the world are improving...we seem to be the only country where doctor's are paid less and less every year but our workload is increasing. Time is not far when our salaries would be less then doctor's earning in third world countries.
