NHS offering £50k per year for US physician associates to practise in underdoctored areas

Comment

So a PA who trained for 2 years gets more pay than a band 7 nurse (40K region) from the UK: , Despite the fact that she probably is better qualified, regulated by the NMC and is fully aware of the functioning (or non functioning) of the NHS. Is a GP replacement by either a PA/Nurse practitioner a sensible option any way.
