Preceptorship - Employer Information

Are you hiring a newly qualified physician associate (PA) in primary care? If so, you may be eligible for £5000 Health Education England funding that can be used to create a preceptorship programme in order to support your new PA.

This £5000 funding is designed to help offer your new PA a formal induction period as well as follow up reviews with a dedicated supervisor. It also means you can fund some protected time each week for education sessions as well as time for your PA to engage in multi-professional learning activities. A preceptorship programme can help provide a stable transition for your newly qualified PA into primary care making them safer, happier and more likely to stick with your practice.

If you're interested in getting this funding then please get in touch with your regional Health Education England contact.
