SAS Charter


 A charter for Staff and Associate Specialist and Specialty Doctors

This Charter sets outs what SAS Doctors can expect from their employers and employers can expect from them.

It also sets out the objectives and the support mechanism that Health Education England (HEE) promotes and provides through individual Local Education Training Boards (LETBs) and Local Education Providers (LEPs).

Originally a 2004 BMA document, it has been updated to reflect subsequent changes to national contracts and to education and training, jointly with the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, HEE and NHS Employers. Joint Local Negotiating Committees (LNCs) are requested to commit to using the charter to help provide an optimum working environment for this valuable group of doctors.

*Please note that BMA Scotland and The Management Steering Group have a separate Charter for Scottish SAS doctors.
