Commission on Human Medicines Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Commission on Human Medicines,

Further to the recent government consultation for regulation of the Medical Allied Professionals and the conclusion and recommendations for urgent regulation / authority to be in place for the fulfillment of these roles, please can you provide information about any current, planned or proposed prescribing regulation.

Please can you provide any uptodate guidance about what are the next steps in this process.

I am referring to the consultation which asked on behalf of four of these roles:

physician associate (PA)
physicians’ assistant (anaesthesia) (PA(A))
surgical care practitioner (SCP)
advanced critical care practitioner (ACCP)

However these may be regulated independently of one another. My main interest is in the Physician Associates if they are independent.

Yours faithfully,

Ian James Smith
MSc Physician Associate
Representative
