Feb 10th, 2021 by primarycareknowledgeboost
As part of their mini-series in Primary Care New Roles, Lisa and Sara spoke with Physician Associate Ricky Staniland to get an idea of how he became a Physician Associate in General Practice and what his role includes at present. Definite learning points were just how varied and useful Physician associates can be in practice. As part of her role as clinical director of Primary Care Workforce and Greater Manchester Training Hub, Dr Ali Lea joins the discussion.
