Contracts and Job Planning for SAS


BMA SAS members have voted in support of a new SAS contract for Scotland, as negotiated by the BMA. The local LNC (local negotiating committee) and BMA team will be working with the board to take this forward - here are the links for the information which is available to date, as well as the recording of the webinar about the new contract:

Details of the new contracts, with example contracts and salary scales are all available at: Specialty Doctors & Specialist Doctors | MSG (scot.nhs.uk)

BMA also has information at their webpage New Scottish SAS contracts (bma.org.uk). If you are a BMA member, you can contact BMA for further guidance.
