SAS Committee

The SAS committee was set up to look after the interests of all SAS/SD anaesthetists. It has close links with the SAS Commitee of the AAGBI. There are two fully elected SAS/SD members of Council of the College (Dr Kirstin May and Dr Lucy Williams).

  • To encourage and facilitate the professional development and academic knowledge of SAS doctors,
  • To encourage and facilitate the career development of SAS doctors, in areas such as involvement with the delivery of training, Examinerships and involvement with local and national management roles.
  • To act as the College’s focal point for SAS Doctors on issues and concerns within the College’s sphere of influence.
  • To liaise with the relevant commissioners of training in all matters relating to the training and education of SAS doctors.
  • To liaise with the other medical Royal Colleges, the AAGBI and other professional bodies on issues of mutual interest.
