Changes to #SASWeek23 following indicative ballot for strike

Details of the indicative ballot for industrial action by SAS doctors and what this means for SAS Week.

28 September 2023

The British Medical Association (BMA) has announced that specialty and specialist (SAS) doctors in England have voted to hold an indicative ballot for strike action. The ballot will open on the 25 September 2023 and close on 16 October.  

As SAS Week is a partnership event with the BMA, due to the constraints of the ballot period, SAS Week will now focus more on local employer experiences and activities.  

Our joint webinar with the BMA for specialists will not go ahead as planned but we will continue to highlight our guidance and useful resources.  

Please do share local successes and celebrations that you would like us to highlight as part of #SASWeek23 and we look forward to celebrating with you during 9-13 October. 

 Access all our SAS Week resources on our SAS Week web page to help with your planning.
