Introduce statutory regulation of physician associates (PAs) by 2023
We want the Government to introduce statutory regulation of physician associates (PAs) by 2023, so that they can register with the GMC, issue prescriptions, and request X-rays and ionising radiation.
Physician Associates have been working in the UK since 2003. They can do chest drains, intubate, run cardiac arrests, see and diagnose an array of patients in clinical and surgical settings as well as first assist in theatre. However, because they are not a registered medical profession they cannot issue prescriptions or order an x-ray.
