About The Event

Following the launch of “Health and Well-being 2026: Delivering Together” and in support of

the Department’s Workforce Strategy, the Department of Health in Northern Ireland has been

working with the University of Ulster in supporting the development of the Physician Associate

Profession locally.

Physician Associate (PA) is a developing profession within the local health sector but is already

firmly established world-wide. PAs work alongside medical staff under the delegated authority

of a doctor.

PAs are trained in medicine and work in partnership with doctors and other members of multidisciplinary

teams. Their introduction to the workforce of the HSC will help to:

Build capacity

Expand the skills mix

Redistribute physician workload

Expand mid-level staffing

Help meet demand for increased quality of care

Enhance stability and continuity of care

The Department is hosting a workshop in The Old School Canteen, Tyrone and Fermanagh

Hospital, Omagh, on 2 October 2018. This event will highlight the role of the

PA and outline both the requirements of our training partners and the support available.
