Physician Associates: The Cancer Workforce of the Future with Suzanne Lilley- Cancer Workforce Lead, Greater Manchester Cancer

This session will explore the role of the physician associate in our cancer workforce both right now and in the future. We will hear first-hand about the role from a Physician Associate Ambassador, Physician Associates and Clinical Leads as well as learning more about the important contribution this profession has made supporting the Covid-19 response in our Greater Manchester health and care system. The session will move on to discuss the lessons we have learned over the last twelve months and lead a panel discussion on the future role of the physician associate.

This session is particularly relevant for workforce leads, clinicians, service managers and commissioners who have an interest in the role of the Physician Associate and who are considering recruiting Physician Associates into their teams/services. It would also be helpful for aspiring Physician Associates with an interest in working in cancer services. This session will also help the wider workforce to prepare them for the introduction of new roles as part of a multi-professional team.

It’s personal – why people choose to stay and leave with Helen Ashley- Retention Manager, North West People Team

Emerging research on generational differences in why people choose to stay in the NHS (and choose to leave it) are highlighting key differences in what’s important and what we each value through different stages of our careers.

However, there are key areas that are essential to each and every one of us. This discussion group shares some of the most recent research findings and looks at a range of different approaches to retaining staff in both health and care from the universal to the highly specialised.

Participants are invited to bring their experiences to the table to create a retention recipe that will suit a wide range of different tastes.
