Only six US physician associates recruited for practices despite £50k salary offer

Comment

We might be cheap as per workload but we are massively inefficient. All those unnecessary follow up appointment, the so called just-in-casers, the DNAs, the Med3s, the GANFYDs, the incidetalomas ....the burnt out partners that surround themselves with trivia to get a rest...and the list continues. Hunt is spot on when it comes to wanting to demolish the NHS but I am not sure privatizing it is the way forward. Maybe if we stopped GPs from getting involved in non-medical matters....big egos do not recognize limitations.
