NHS Employers and the British Medical Association (BMA) jointly held a webinar on 4 September 2019 to support NHS organisations in the implementation of the SAS charter through sharing available support and resources and providing an overview of two examples of best practice.
The charter for specialty and associate specialist (SAS) doctors sets out the support available to SAS doctors and what they can expect from their employers.
In this webinar, Dr Amit Kochhar, BMA SAS committee chair and associate specialist at University Hospitals Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, talks through the importance of the SAS charter, the benefits it brings and what steps have been taken at his trust to implement the charter.
Dr Hilary Grant, executive medical director and Meagan Fernandes, head of human resources from Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust describe the collaborative approach they have taken to implement the recommendations of the SAS charter.
