GP out-of-hours services to include more prominent role for nurses


Lol earlier comment.... Doctor informed... Referred to Doctor... How do I spell your surname? .... I always like to get them to spell theirs first ... Actually nurse histories are often very thorough and exemplary and can leave little for the doctor to add This makes it frustrating in some scenarios Where a case is passed on just to absolve risk... Iit's like a footballer who has gone all the way to the other side And instead of scoring ... Just kicks the ball back to their own Goalie So the GP can do all the same again Sometimes checking and re typing the history and findings And completing the case with a final decision plan
