SAS Doctors (Specialty Doctors and Associate Specialists) previously known as Staff Grade and Associate Specialist Doctors (SAS Doctors) are experienced and senior Career Grade Doctors working within the NHS. They work across all specialties, both in clinical and non-clinical areas. By tradition they have had a high level of service commitment. Training has not been part of the SAS doctor contract. Unfortunately all too often Continuing Professional Development (CPD) has been ignored as well.
Health Education England (HEE), by appointing an Associate Dean for SAS Doctors, has demonstrated that it recognises that CPD and some exposure to specialist education is an integral part of each SAS Doctor's development. A network of SAS Tutors has been set up across the East Midlands and these Leads have the responsibility for promoting the education for SAS Doctors within their respective Trusts. HEE has also recognised the need to develop in partnership with Trusts and SAS doctors an educational CPD strategy to support future SAS doctor development. A copy of this strategy can be downloaded here.
