Physician associate indemnity ‘costs practices upwards of £2,400’


How can the junior PA be seeing 40 patients per day and only pay 2400 MDU? It doesn't compute , unless he is just doing 1-2 sessions per week surely ? I wonder what type of patients he is seeing and what problems are being dealt with . I would be concerned that a junior PA ( considering the limited duration and intensity of their training) is able to safely see 40 undifferentiated GP cases per day safely . This would be taxing even for an experienced GP . All very bizarre .
