Anyone come across physician assistants? There is one at our surgery who started four weeks ago. It is something new apparently. Found out today when I phoned to speak to a doctor and saw her later on for an appointment. Apparently it's something between a doctor and a nurse. Science degree and then two years training. I can see that it is valuable in freeing up doctor's for more complex stuff, but the Question I am asking myself, sceptic that I am, is this DC and his acolytes thinking up another way of saving money on the NHS budget?
