SAS surgeons work at various career grades in hospitals. SAS surgeons work in key service roles within the NHS and carry out a wide range of surgical care, on the ward, in the outpatient clinic, and in the operating theatre.
As an SAS surgeon, you may be working at a variety of levels of seniority within the hospital. This section will help you assess whether you want to become an SAS surgeon, how to enter these posts, and how you can arrange your career progression once you have done so.
The College has produced a Newsletter for all SAS Surgeons which is available here:email us
