Staffordshire Physician Associate Internship Future Proposals to support organisations across the country

Howbeck Healthcare have been leading the way with North Staffordshire GP Federation on their unique and innovative Staffordshire Physician Associate Internship Programme.  Over the last number of years, the internship has supported over 31 PAs across Staffordshire and Shropshire STPs and an additional 6 PAs in Birmingham and Solihull.  The internship programme has been successful due to the dual role across primary and secondary care and  the bespoke programme of education and support for the PAs and practices. 

Based on our success, we are working with Health Education England on a proposal to support other providers and organisations across the country with our offer of support on a number of proposals whether its support to deliver an internship programme from the onset or simply to commission the established teaching programme available. 

In addition, for all new PAs who join the internship programme, they are offered our online video resources  Howbeck’s How2 to improve or refresh their IT skills in primary care with support bundles / videos of EMIS Web; docman and specific bundles for various clinicians. https://www.howbeckhow2.co.uk
