    PA week 2023

    PA week 2023

    For #PAweek2023, I was hosted on the General Practice Podcast by Ben Gowland. Ben was the inspiration for me setting up the PA podcast, and he's been very supportive in helping behind the scenes.

    It was lovely to speak to Ben about the current issues facing the PA profession, and how things might develop in the future.

Helpful podcast

Thanks so much James for making the effort to do this podcast. I am a careers mentor for prospective PA students for two Universities and I recommend it to them, as well as our current students who are interested in learning more about PAs in specific job areas. Great to have this as a free resource, thank you!
