Doctors Resource Guide

The HEE report Maximising the Potential: essential measures to support SAS doctors identified a number of ways in which trust's could support their SAS doctors. Based on this report, we have identified a number of resources available from the Knowledge and Library Service or online which SAS, Clinical Fellows and Trust grade doctors should find useful.

Some resources will only be available to trust library members. The guide signposts resources which are relevant to career progression and job planning, and then looks at resource to help develop more general skills and for professional development.
