SAS Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Can the RCPCH intervene if SAS doctors feel that they are being denied recognition for a work role they are fulfilling?
No, such cases should be taken up with a trade union (for example, the BMA).
What is the role of the RCPCH SAS Regional Representatives?
The College is currently re-establishing the SAS Regional Representatives Network.
SAS Regional Representatives are SAS doctors elected to represent SAS views on their local RCPCH Regional Committee.
SAS doctors seeking information on educational and training matters or on CPD should contact their local SAS Regional Representative or the SAS Committee.
For more difficult enquiries the SAS Regional Representative will seek expert advice via the SAS Committee or the local RCPCH Regional Committee.
