The British Medical Association (BMA), Health Education England (HEE), the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (The Academy) and NHS Employers (NHSE) have worked together to produce new guidance on the development of specialty and associate specialist (SAS) doctors in the NHS in England. The SAS doctor development guide will help to ensure that this important group of doctors are helped to remain fit to practice and develop in their careers.
The guide describes actions that can be taken to ensure that best practice is applied in the development of SAS doctors and dentists, and how different groups can work together to ensure best practice is consistently applied. It is useful and appropriate to anyone involved in the development of SAS doctors, including employers, HEE’s local team and SAS doctors themselves.
