Staffordshire Physician Associate Internship Programme shortlisted for ‘Primary Care Initiative of the Year’ HSJ award!

We are delighted to announce that the Staffordshire Physician Associate Internship Programme has been shortlisted for ‘Primary Care Initiative of the Year’ for the 2019 HSJ awards.

The Staffordshire Physician Associate Internship Programme is a locally developed internship for Physician Associates (PA) work 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 24 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.   To date 22 PAs have been recruited over a 15-month timescale.
