Personal care consultants are taking on a new role in the NHS, as more of them are taking up jobs as personal carers.
The profession of personal carer has been growing steadily in recent years, and many of the people who are currently working as personal caregivers are not professionals, according to new research from the University of Oxford.
It also reveals a lot about the wider industry in the country, with a lot of people being “a bit of an outsider” and some being “truly professionals”.
The research was published in the British Journal of Nursing.
The research also shows that the job of personal service has been in decline in recent decades.
The role has been steadily increasing over the last 20 years, with the number of personal caregivers working in England up by a third from 1.5 million in 2004 to 4.6 million in 2016.
In England, personal care assistants (PAs) currently make up 13% of the workforce.
This has also risen from 8.4% in 2008 to 13.2% in 2016, with around 5% of PAs working as the family doctor.
PAs are a very common role in hospitals, but they are not expected to make up the majority of the work that a PAs does, according the researchers.
The majority of PAS jobs are low paid, with an average salary of £23,000.
But the role has also seen a rise in popularity in the past decade, as a new generation of PIs are graduating to the role.
The number of PA jobs has been on a steady rise over the past 10 years.
There are now 1.8 million PAs in England, up from 951,000 in 2016 and 3.4 million in 2012.
PIs make up a third of the total number of health professionals working in the health service, with over 1.3 million health professionals.
However, they have been largely under-represented compared to the general population, and there is no gender pay gap between PAs and other staff, the researchers found.
There is also no evidence that PAs experience any job insecurity.
This is partly because PAs work closely with patients, rather than working as an independent agency, and because there is a higher degree of support for PAs compared to other health professionals, they said.
They also said the role of personal aides is often overlooked, because they are considered less senior than PAs.
The study also looked at the role in England of “policymakers”, which includes ministers, health ministers and other government representatives, and also examined how well people who worked in the private sector understood their role in running the NHS.
This study showed that people who had worked in government in the previous 10 years were more likely to believe they were “a real professional”.
The study found that people from outside the profession were more supportive of POs than those who had been in the profession for 10 years or more.
The researchers found that there were many reasons why people did not believe they had a real job.
They were also more likely than those from the public sector to say that they had “never worked in an agency”.
They also felt that their work was not done adequately.
The most common reasons given by people who said they were not a real professional were not being honest, being too busy or having a bad attitude, the study found.
However the researchers also found that POs were often more accepting of other people’s personal choices, than PIs.
There were also some benefits to the POs, the authors said.
“POs are more likely not to feel judged and are less likely to be perceived as an outsider.
They are also more open to personal involvement, such as helping patients in their homes or in a private room, or volunteering in their community.”
It was not clear whether the people in the study were more comfortable with PAs than POs who had never worked in a government role, or were more interested in the role and the role they were in.
