Our History:

The Thames Valley and Wessex School of Physician Associates was launched in February 2021, with support and funding from Health Education England (HEE).  In 2022 we officially merged with the Kent, Surrey and Sussex school to form the new region wide South East School of Physician Associates.  

In 2015 there was only 2 PAs working in the Thames Valley with 0 PAs working in Wessex.  We now have over 150 PAs on our mailing list working within TVW.


Thames Valley and Wessex are also proud to host one of the largest employers of PAs in the UK.
