Supporting SAS Doctors
SAS doctors (Specialty doctors, Associate Specialists and Staff grades including trust grades and other locally appointed doctors) play a significant role in the delivery of clinical services in the NHS. SAS doctors usually enter the grade with a minimum of four years’ clinical experience after medical school but, often have many more years, possibly even decades, of experience to contribute. They bring a wealth of clinical knowledge to our health service. This page provides for information for SAS doctors on career progression and CESR application as well as upcoming conferences.
