Howbeck Healthcare is extremely proud to be providing the project management support for the Staffordshire Physician Associate Internship initiated and developed within the North Staffordshire GP Federation. This locally developed internship for Physician Associates (PA) works across primary and secondary care, to determine whether a new model of workforce and skill mix is both sustainable and clinically effective.
This programme was developed to appoint 12 Physician Associates (PAs) offering a 1-year internship working across primary and secondary to offer solutions to the local and national GP workforce issues and to offer the best patient care across Staffordshire.
As one of the first Physician Associate Internships to offer this structured programme of work, this is being closely observed and informing national workforce planning for roll out nationally. We are extremely proud that the RCGP are in the process of endorsing the Staffordshire Physician Associate Programme.
