We are very proud of the work we have done to develop our Specialty and Associate Specialist (SAS) Doctors, with many of our doctors choosing to be SAS by choice but also we support many of our doctors with the Certificate of Eligibility for the Specialist Register (CESR) and progression to be a substantive consultant. We truly value our SAS doctors. 

We have thriving SAS development days, which include both academic and pastoral elements, meeting every 2 months to drive forward the educational developments of this group of doctors. 

We also have an excellent CESR Development Peer Group, led by medical education, which meets every month to drive forward the educational developments for this group of doctors. There are also ‘CESR Coaches’ who are senior doctors with experience of CESR who support our doctors to prepare for CESR. 

"I am proud to be associated with LSCft for clearly demonstrating interest in the development of SAS Doctors as part of the well-established educational culture."
