Physician Assistants

Miss Ramish Ali (f)

We are pleased to welcome a new clinician to our expanding team. 

Ramish Ali is our Physician Associate. She is a medically trained, generalist healthcare professional, who works alongside doctors and provides medical care as an integral part of our multidisciplinary team.

Physician associates are practitioners working with a dedicated medical supervisor but are available to work autonomously with appropriate support.

What Do Physician Associates Do?

Physician associates work within a defined scope of practice and limits of competence. They:

  • take medical histories from patients
  • carry out physical examinations
  • see patients with undifferentiated diagnoses
  • see patients with long-term chronic conditions
  • formulate differential diagnoses and management plans
  • perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures
  • develop and deliver appropriate treatment and management plans
  • request and interpret diagnostic studies
  • provide health promotion and disease prevention advice for patients.

Currently, physician associates are not able to:

  • prescribe
  • request ionising radiation (e.g., chest x-ray or CT scan).

Community Nurses

Clinics are based at the Integrated Care Centre (Mon – Fri). Patients can only be seen with a pre-booked appointment. Clinics include ear syringing, wound dressing, stitch removal.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
