SAS Trust Leads, Tutors and Specialty Leads


Each Trust within the North West has been encouraged to establish an SAS Lead/Tutor. The contact details for all established leads can be found below. The SAS Trust Lead/Tutor is a point of contact for all SAS doctors and is there to support and offer guidance on career related issues, education and development and the use of SAS CPD funding at a local level. Your SAS Trust Lead should be your first point of contact if you have any queries relating to these areas. 

You can click on the appropriate Lead/Tutor's name to send them an email. If your trust does not currently have an SAS Lead/ Tutor, please contact or your medical education department for information/ guidence.
