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, often with prior experience gained in other countries.

The Academy brings together SAS doctors from different specialities via a Committee to share examples of good practice and promote professional representation and development for SAS doctors.

The work is led by Dr Waleed Arshad (Chair) and managed by Alison Moulds. For further information on any of our past or current work with SAS doctors please contact Alison Moulds.
