The General Medical Council’s first UK wide survey of speciality and associate specialists (SAS) and locally employed doctors (LEDs) is now open. You have six weeks to share your views, before the survey closes at midday on Wednesday 12 June.

Calling all SAS and locally employed doctors

SAS and locally employed doctors make a hugely valuable contribution to UK health services. The GMC's survey will help build a comprehensive view of the issues affecting you, across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

Later this year, the GMC will publish the results and report on key trends. Together with a range of organisations, they will look at how we can better support doctors working in these roles, both now and in the future.

Questions the survey will ask

The survey will cover a number of areas relating to the SAS and locally employed doctor role. Questions will include:

  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Training and professional development opportunities 
  • The Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR) and Certificate of Eligibility for GP Registration (CEGPR) process
  • Working environments 
  • Bullying and undermining

It closes on midday on Wednesday 12 June.
