PRACTITIONERS of mature years will recall the days when every practice had a ‘yardsman’. His duties were wide-ranging and might have included grooming the principal's horse ready for his rounds or assisting with manual tasks such as castrations. Perhaps he also would have cleaned the principal's spats and boots each morning. Nowadays, some practices employ a paraprofessional who will undertake tasks ranging from routine maintenance of property through to assisting with surgical procedures.
