SAS doctors: support for the CESR training route

28 / 06 / 2018

The case study from Calderdale and Huddersfield Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust shares how it:

  • established a certificate of eligibility for specialist registration (CESR) support group
  • designed posts to enable specialty and associate specialist (SAS) and trust doctors to achieve the experience, knowledge and skills required to apply for CESR
  • created a supply of doctors who can progress into consultant positions.

It also provides top tips for other organisations that may wish to introduce a similar support programme to address challenges faced by SAS and trust doctors around recruitment and retention.
