The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (RCPE) welcomed this important consultation and was pleased to respond. The RCPE considers that PAs and AAs play an extremely important and positive role within our health services as part of multidisciplinary teams and we welcome moves that will further enhance the status of PAs and AAs and incorporate them within formal regulation through the GMC, something which can enhance patient confidence and safety.
