Dr Holden said: “While this is an interim measure, the publication is timely and will allow PAs and AAs prepare now for the changes they are likely to see and feel as their professions are brought under the GMC’s remit.
“MDDUS is currently working closely with the GMC as it reviews Good Medical Practice (GMP) as a whole.
“Until the regulator decides whether it will issue a separate version of GMP for PAs and AAs this interim version will make a useful reference for both groups.”
Protecting the professional interests of our members is at the heart of what MDDUS exists to do, including supporting and advising doctors on interactions with the GMC.
We have offered membership to PAs for nearly a decade and as regulation of this group and AAs draws nearer, we will continue to review our professional services in support of existing and future members from these groups in response.
