We have approximately 80 Staff Grades, Associate Specialists and Specialty Doctors (SAS Doctors) employed by Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust (RCHT) and Community Hospitals throughout Cornwall.
Support & Educational Development for SAS Doctors
Your SAS Tutor, Dr Vanessa Wright, is responsible for ensuring that all SAS doctors have equal access to advice, support and educational development. You are entitled to two yearly interviews with your SAS Tutor and appraisals to review professional profiles, and highlight areas for development. To ensure that you keep your SAS interviews up to date, please contact Sarah Lampshire to arrange appointments.
A SAS Specialty Lead has been nominated for each Specialty to facilitate communication between you and your SAS Tutor. They will represent your interests and present any feedback at quarterly educational meetings.
SAS Study Days
Regular educational Study Days are held at the Postgraduate Education Centre Royal Cornwall Hospital.
