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


You need 10 year of training, lot of hard work/ difficult exams to start working as a GP. Whereas 2 yr of training and you are a PA.... salary of 50K. Go for it guys , why do you want to go through all the hassle and hard work. The way things are Government is not going to invest in getting more GPs, so we will have to look for cheap options. Sadly, even the Asian doctors are not going to rescue General practice this I don't see them coming to sort out recruitment crisis. Salaries are much better in India then they were 10-20 years ago. Middle East/Australia/ Newzealand are offering much better packages and unfortunately we are no more a pulling force in the global world!!
