SAS charter promotion

The committee has created a poster to promote the SAS charter for Wales for members to share via any channels, such as hospitals, libraries and postgrad centres.

Wales SAS survey

BMA Cymru Wales launched a survey of SAS doctors in November 2018 to get a better idea of whether working conditions had improved since the launch of the SAS charter for Wales in 2016.
