Clinical Practitioners


Clinical Practitioners are an integral part of Waterfield House Surgery and are supported by on-call GP.

Physician Associate (PA)  are one such clinical practitioner. PA is a graduate, usually with a science degree, who has completed a 2 year Post Graduate programme in clinical skills. Trained to assess patients’ problems in a similar way to doctors. PAs assist doctors through consulting, managing challenging tasks, and allowing GPs to concentrate on the most complex cases. Currently they are unable to prescribe medications or request ionising radiation (eg chest x-ray or CT scan). PAs are a relatively new discipline and have great potential within General Practice.
