Physicians Associates

Physician Associates is an new Additional Role the NHS has implemented into GP practices. Some practices across Rushcliffe have a physician associate.

Physician Associates (PAs) are healthcare professionals with a generalist medical education who work alongside doctors to provide medical care as part of the multidisciplinary team. The first PAs were formally introduced in the UK in 2003! 

PAs have undertaken a focused 2-year postgraduate degree in physician associate studies which is a mixture of medical teaching and clinical placement. This is after they have already completed a 3-to-4-year undergraduate degree in a health or life science.   

PAs generally work alongside and under the close supervision of a doctor. They are trained to work within a defined scope of practice which generally includes taking medical histories from patients, carrying out physical examinations & formulating differential diagnoses and management plans.

PAs currently can’t prescribe therefore prescriptions usually require a discussion with their supervising doctor

About Our Reception Team

The receptionists are there to help you. They receive special training in reception work. They are able to book appointments and give you messages about results. They also answer the telephone and deal with many different queries. They carry out one of the most difficult jobs in the practice, often trying to do more than one job at a time, so please be patient when waiting at the desk. They are not medically qualified and should not be asked to diagnose skin rashes or give medical advice. Please remember that they are only acting on our instructions so don’t shout at them if we are running late or you haven’t received your hospital appointment yet!

If you have any problems or difficulties please speak to the senior receptionist or practice manager.
