Primary Care Physician Associate Conference 2024 – Great Success!

Fantastic to see how we have continued to build on the success of last year’s first ever Primary Care Physician Associate Annual Conference.  Last week certainly marked a memorable occasion seeing the largest ever number of primary care PAs gather from all over the country.

This year, saw a bigger venue at the Bet365 Stoke City Stadium which allowed for more PAs to attend our conference.  It was great to see such a positive and enthusiastic vibe amongst all delegates, sponsors and presenters.

We had excellent speakers presenting on a variety of topics including dermatology, respiratory, interpreting blood results and a very informative update on MAPS regulation and session on professionalism from the GMC. The former generated lots of questions from the audience along with fastest finger first interactive quiz on physical signs and symptoms.

At the end of the conference, delegates left looking forward to next year’s annual conference!

“Just a thank you on behalf of our PAs for a great day conference. You pitched it just right I think to be positive and educational, especially having PAs lead in the clinical teaching. It was really good to see PAs asking many questions and so sharing their concerns, hopefully easing them too.”

“All the PAs were positive and looking forward to December 13th when , finally, their profession is regulated by GMC.”

“Thank you again for your hard work making the day really successful -the venue, food etc were excellent and this must be an annual event that grows in stature.”
