Can anyone tell me at what point nurses were permitted to make diagnosis and prescribe medicine? But without the 5 years or so training that a doctor has. I'm not being rude about nurses, but I really am puzzled.
I went to the surgery last Thurs, was seen by a nurse who mis-diagnosed me and gave me the wrong medicine. Returned on Friday after being even sicker than I was; Doctor told me I did not have the illness the nurse had diagnosed and to stop taking the medication. He has now arranged for me to see a consultant. Thank heavens he seemed to be on the ball.
