Staff Grade, Associate Specialist and Specialty Doctor
Staff grade, associate specialist and specialty doctors (SAS) are important members of any department, especially in Anaesthesia, and make an enormous contribution to service work.
Doctors enter the SAS grade for many different reasons. Some enter from different training systems as the SAS route provides a means for secure employment; some have child care or family responsibilities and others do not wish to take on the role of consultant with the attendant responsibilities and duties.
