My project is examining Physician Associates (PAs) in Wales. PAs are a relatively new healthcare professional in the NHS, especially so in Wales. The study will examine how well prepared PAs are for their role following training, their contribution to multidisciplinary team working and service provision and how patients respond to the role.

Prior to starting my PhD, I worked as a Research Assistant in Public Health Wales as part of the Early Action Together Programme (EAT). EAT is an initiative involving public health, policing and criminal justice organisations across Wales, taking a public health approach to policing and criminal justice. In addition to this, I also assisted with the evaluation of the Inspiring Families Programme; a whole family assessment for families where domestic abuse has been identified.

I have also worked as a Research Assistant for Llamau, a charity supporting vulnerable young people and women in Wales. I assisted with the evaluation of the Symud Ymlaen/Moving Forward Project which provided young people who were LAC or involved with YOT with work placements and employability support.
