S2E4: Jamie Saunders on Physician Associates, bridging the gap & the need for regulation.
Jamie Saunders worked as a senior radiographer before studying to become a Physician's Associate. He toyed with the idea of becoming a doctor, but soon realised that the PA role better suited his desires and career aspirations. In this episode we explore the role and history of physician associates in the UK and abroad. We look at their real-life impact on services and also the controversy that has surrounded their jobs.
From their introduction to the public as "cut-price doctors", to the backlash from the medical field to todays debate surrounding regulation...we leave no stone unturned.
