Hi

This is just my guess

A number of countries have contracted out health services to doctors on the basis that payment depends on the health outcomes that are achieved. It is known as 'Payment by Results'. In that case, you could refer to a PBR doctor

I wouldn't expect the abbreviation to appear with a doctor's name or prescription but maybe that happens. Here is a link ...

The obvious answer is, of course, for someone to ask their doctor (I will when I get the opportunity). Always good advice to ask your doctor if there's anything you don't understand

Have you any more information on that? It seems rather strange to me. The aricle you linked us to said nothing about health care, except for the administration of vaccines.

Hi

I can't claim to know a great deal about but it operates in the UK National Health Service. This is the professional / technical document about it. It's called a simple guide but it seems quite formidable to me ...
