Staff and Associate Specialist Ophthalmologists (SAS)
Welcome to the Staff and Associate Specialist Ophthalmologists' Group pages of the College website.
Who are these pages for?
Ophthalmologists in the Staff and Associate Specialist (SAS) group include Associate Specialists, Staff Grades, Specialty Doctors, Clinical Assistants and non-standard, non-training Trust Grades, many of whom are working at a senior level in hospitals with a wide range of responsibilities.
The SAS Committee
The College's SAS Committee was established in 2006. The SAS Group represents SAS ophthalmologists on all main College committees, and on Council. The President attends our meetings (held three times a year) along with the Chief Executive. The committee Chairman also represents SAS ophthalmologists on the SAS committee of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges.
The SAS Committee raises the profile of SAS ophthalmologists and improves recognition of their work. We hold a Forum at every College Congress which provides an opportunity to speak directly to the President and College Officers.
We have introduced an annual study day every October which provides an opportunity to learn and to meet colleagues from around the country.
It is also our role to maintain contact with as many SAS ophthalmologists as possible and to disseminate information to SAS members and to bring their comments and views back to the college.
The members of the Committee represent SAS ophthalmologists on the basis of one member for every region. We provide representation on key College Committees as listed below.
