The Charter for specialty and associate specialist (SAS) doctors, published in December 2014, sets out what SAS doctors can expect from their employers and what employers can expect of them. This includes recommendations around contracts, job planning, support, development, involvement in organisational structures and recruitment.

It also sets out the objectives and the support mechanism that Health Education England (HEE) promotes and provides through individual Local Education and Training Boards (LETBs) and Local Education Providers (LEPs).

It is a joint document, signed up to by the British Medical Association (BMA), the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, HEE and NHS Employers.

A Charter for SAS doctors in Scotland has also been agreed jointly by the BMA Scotland and Management Steering Group (MSG). Wales and Northern Ireland are in the process of agreeing their own Charters.
