The Physician Associate Managed Voluntary Register (PAMVR) is held exclusively by the Faculty of Physician Associates (FPA), and only Physician Associates (PAs) who are fully qualified and approved will be on this register.
In the interest of patient safety, the FPA strongly encourages all employers (NHS trusts, GP, PA agencies, and private healthcare providers) of PAs to check the PAMVR status of the PA at regular intervals during the year. The PAMVR should also be checked at the point of contractual agreement to ensure they are in good standing. Download our letter to employers to understand the importance of this further.
The PAMVR was established in June 2010 to provide public protection and safety, set standards for post graduate education and development, and to advance towards statutory regulation.
The FPA reviews applications to join the PAMVR, and establishes whether the physician associate applying is fit to practice in the UK. If a physician associate is listed on the PAMVR, then employers, members of the public, supervisors and other healthcare professionals can be safe in the knowledge that they are a fully qualified and approved physician associate.
The PAMVR will be updated fortnightly on a Friday by 5pm* To search the PAMVR click here.
