Stephen Nash from the United Medical Associate Professions (UMAPs) group has published an article in PULSE, which stresses the positives of physician associates in healthcare teams.

Co-written with another PA (known as E.L.), the article highlights the positive contributions PAs make as part of a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) and clarifies misconceptions surrounding their training, supervision, and scope of practice.

“Physician Associates have a proven track record of providing high-quality care within the NHS for over 20 years,” Nash said. “They undergo rigorous training and work collaboratively with GPs and other healthcare professionals to meet the evolving needs of patients.”

UMAPs encourages open and constructive dialogue about the role of physician associates in the UK. The organisation offers its full support to employers seeking to utilise PAs effectively within their teams.

The United Medical Associate Professions (UMAPs) is a not-for-profit organization representing physician associates (PAs), anaesthesia associates (AAs), and surgical care practitioners (SCPs) in the UK.

UMAPs advocates for the advancement of the professions and promotes collaboration within the healthcare system. UMAPs offers a range of benefits to its members, such as HR and legal advice, medical indemnity and community support.
