22 February 2017
Health Education England along with The British Medical Association, the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and NHS Employers has today published new guidance on the development of specialty and associate specialist (SAS) doctors in the NHS in England.
This guide has been developed to help 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 that best practice is applied in the development of SAS doctors and dentists, and how different groups can work together to ensure the principles are consistently applied.
