“As their presence in the NHS increases, there is growing interest in PAs (Physician Associates), what they do, and how they fit with the established roles and systems” The BMA 2017

“There are currently a number of concerns affecting the health service and impacting upon the ability to deliver good quality, safe and effective care. We believe that an increase in the number of Physician Associates working in the NHS will assist in addressing a number of these concerns. Physician Associates will provide expert support to clinical teams in the delivery of holistic care and treatment, helping to build much needed capacity in the NHS workforce.” National Physician Associate Expansion Programme

The Department of Health’s Competence and Curriculum Framework for the Physician Associate defines the physician associate as:… “a new healthcare professional who, while not a doctor, works to the medical model, with the attitudes, skills and knowledge base to deliver holistic care and treatment within the general medical and/or general practice team under defined levels of supervision.”

This timely one day conference focuses on developing the role of the Physician Associate in your service, how the demonstrated benefits of the role can support you and your service and improve patient care. The conference will also look at developing the role of the Physician Associate in practice . Through national updates and practical case studies the conference will enable you to understand the role and the benefits and practical implications in practice for deployment in your service.

The conference will also discuss the regulation, accountability and supervision of Physician Associates in practice with case studies from hospital and GP settings.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues working to develop the role of the Physician Associate
  • Improve the relationships and ways of working between Physician Associates and the Multidisciplinary team
