The KSS School of Physician Associates is based at SASH and is the first of its kind.

SASH is the largest employer of Physician Associates (PAs) in the region. Originally the main reason for employing PA at SASH was to improve continuity on a ward level due to a need to alter the medical rota to match peak demand times. With broadening of the foundation programme (for junior doctors) to include community placements, additional PAs have helped to enhance the medical workforce at the Trust and reduce the need for costly locum spending.
