Regional Staff, Associate Specialist and Specialty doctors committee (RSASC) meetings

The Regional SAS Committees (RSASC) meet four times a year to discuss issues that are most important to SAS doctors in their respective regions.

Come along and have your say on the things that matter to you and your work.

 

Who should attend

One meeting per year is open to all SAS doctors in their regional areas. Other meetings are formed of representatives from each Trust (generally SAS LNC reps).

If you would like to represent your Trust on the Committee please speak to your IRO.
