At our trust, supporting newly employed SAS doctors is paramount to ensuring their seamless integration and professional growth within our healthcare system. This includes providing an appropriate contract, job plan and planned activities, incorporating supporting professional activities (SPA) time, conducting regular annual appraisals, ensuring an appropriate induction to their role, and most importantly, providing an educational supervisor to support and development related to applying for the portfolio pathway formerly known as Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR), and SAS tutor for support.

Several SAS doctors at our trust have obtained specialist registration through the CESR pathway and are presently serving as consultants.
