The RCPCH committee for SAS doctors represents the specific needs of SAS doctors practicing in paediatrics, both College members and non-members with the aim of improving recognition of their contribution to paediatrics as well as their oportunities for continuing professional development, support and progression. The chair of the committee sits on College Council.
An elected SAS representative sits on each Regional Committee of the RCPCH. They are responsible for assisting SAS doctors in their region and raising any issues for their constituents at the Regional Committee, or with the SAS Committee.
We currently have a number of posts to be filled. If you would like to apply, please complete an application form.
Does the RCPCH have a recommended or required appraisal process for SAS doctors?
Appraisal is not an RCPCH process, but a Trust-based one. Appraisals are done against national standards and for SAS doctors they should be worked out with the supervising Consultants. RCPCH Regional Training Advisers can counsel SAS doctors on appraisal aspects.
