Nocters can make our clinics much tougher . They take all the easy urti , rashes, pill checks. My clinic is then filled with patients on 3/4 th course of abx for UTI (usually given by noctor , no Ix instituted) complex mental health , recent hospital discharges with no diagnosis etc etc .all in 10 min intervals .Not to mention the sometimes inappropriate advise an inexperienced noctor can give for eg advising young patient with short hx of typical IBS symptoms they must request referral to get an upper and lower gi endoscopy!
