Welcome to all Specialty Doctors, Staff Grades and Associate Specialists

These pages provide a single source of information relevant to SAS doctors working in the South West. Our emphasis will be on education, revalidation and CPD. Rather than duplicating information, links to further reading/ information are provided as and where necessary. We hope that this will provide doctors with useful and practical information they need to progress.

Dr Imran Saif is the Associate Postgraduate Dean for SAS Doctors for Health Education South West.

The SAS Trust Leads/Tutors in the Health Education South West (HESW) region are the first point of contact for all SAS doctors and are there to support and offer guidance on career-related issues, education and development, and the use of SAS CPD funding at a local level. HESW would be pleased to offer guidance and support for individual cases. Please contact the Associate Dean directly or via Sarah Smith - Support and Development Coordinator. We are very open to suggestions, and would welcome your comments.
