Physician Associate episodes

I found this podcast as a means of learning about the Physician Associate role in the U.K. I am a Physician Assistant in the US, with hopes of moving to the U.K. While I haven't listened to all of the episodes, I found the episodes #40, 43, and 52 regarding Physician Associates to be extremely valuable. I appreciate the information given, as well as the interview with GP Joanna Munden regarding her PA and how the PA functions.

Thank you, Ben, for a wonderful podcast! I will continue listening to all of your episodes!
