Guidance for SAS professional development
Guidance for application of SAS continuing professional development funding provides detail about funding that is now being made available in the years 2021/22 and 2023/24 to support SAS doctors in their professional development. The guidance explains the funding’s scope and principles, its eligibility criteria, and how it can be accessed.
The choice window for expressions of interest from doctors wishing to transition to the new contracts has been open since 1 April 2021 and will close on 30 September 2021. Employers should now have written to all SAS doctors who are eligible to move to the new contracts, inviting an expression of interest from them.
Further resources to support implementation can be found on our guidance and resources for SAS contract 2021 page.
