On 22 February 2017 the BMA, HEE, AoMRC and NHS Employers published new guidance on the development of specialty and associate specialist (SAS) doctors | NHS Employers
The guide aims to help to ensure that this important group of doctors remain fit to practice and develop in their careers. It describes actions that can be taken to ensure best practice is applied in the development of SAS doctors and dentists, as well as how different groups can work together to ensure the principle are consistently applied.
It is useful for anyone involved in the development of SAS doctors, such as employers, medical royal colleges, HEE’s local team and SAS doctors themselves. The guide contains specific sections for:
- NHS boards
- medical directors
- medical staffing teams
- SAS doctors.
