Workforce Development - Physician Associates

For NHS professionals or employers looking for more information on Physician Associates.


The Physician Associate (PA) is: “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.”

To help explain the role of the Physician Associate in the NHS, Health Education West Midlands have produced a video titled 'A Day in the Life of a Physician Associate' The aim of the documentary is to provide an objective, accessible and informative insight into the world of the PA, in a medium which is versatile enough to be used in a variety of marketing, educational and recruitment-support strategies.

If you are interested in supporting a Physician Associate in general practice please contact the east of England local office for more information.
