Improved support for Specialty and Associate Specialist doctors


Specialty and Associate Specialist (SAS) doctors in England will have access to improved support and better development opportunities thanks to measures outlined in the report ‘Maximising the potential: essential measures to support SAS doctors’.

SAS doctors make up 20% of the medical workforce but many say they lack workplace support, find it hard to move between specialties, have limited access to training and some have reported bullying.

Through implementation of the shared commitments in the report, Health Education England (HEE) along with us and other partners will work together to improve opportunities for SAS doctors to advance as clinicians and leaders in healthcare, to improve the knowledge of what they do among other healthcare professionals and to promote SAS as an attractive career option.
