As of April 2021 we have appointed 8 Physician Associates to join our team. Physician associates are medically trained, generalist healthcare professionals, who work alongside doctors and provide medical care as an integral part of the multidisciplinary team. Physician associates are dependent practitioners who are able to work autonomously but are also supported with clinical leadership. You may find your practice books you an appointment with a Physicians Associate, also known as a PA, as this is the best person to see you on the day.
Physician Associates support doctors in the diagnosis and management of patients. They are trained to perform a number of roles including: taking medical histories, performing examinations, analysing test results, and diagnosing illnesses.
