The Academy of Medical Royal College’s (AOMRC) understanding of Supporting Professional Activities (SPAs) is that they reflect time spent undertaking teaching, training, education, CPD (including reading journals), audit, appraisal, research, clinical management, clinical governance, service development etc; activities that are essential to the long-term maintenance of the quality of the service but do not represent direct patient care.
