SAS Leadership Fellow

For SAS doctors seeking recognition as Autonomous Practitioners
Click here for further information
We are a Faculty of Medical Consultants with MBA or MSc Medical Leadership, who are also experienced researchers, who have been working with doctors since 2010.

We will help you at all stages of your career to undertake a research project, from start to finish to: plan, design, implement and publish your own Medical Leadership Research Project. All doctors need to be proficient in research methods.

In November 2020, the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges recommended that more Specialist and Associate Specialist doctors should be supported to undertake research. SAS doctors often undertake a senior level post, fulfilling many of the roles and responsibilities of consultants, but often don’t have support to undertake a research project.

We will help you from the initial stages of planning, registration and the development of new skills to undertake research that you will be able to publish. We have built our track record working with doctors to undertake research and our work has helped doctors to:

• Advance their medical careers
• Successfully pass Consultant Interviews
• Be offered senior leadership opportunities in their job roles
• Publish their work
• Gain promotion
• Pass Royal College examinations

Our courses help doctors to gain a greater profile amongst their peers by:

• Supporting the advancement of research in their department
• Evidence to improve the health care system
• To provide real time research peer teaching to juniors
• To support the positive publicity of the department through research
• Raise the profile of doctors at conferences
• Raise the profile of doctors through publication

Our Values

Diversity and Inclusion

Co-design and Co-creation

Respect our clients confidence

The health and social care workforce comprises of one of the most diverse workforces of any industry. Clinicians represent all countries across the globe and we acknowledge that women are 50% of the clinical workforce. We are aware that often the talents of our diverse teams are not always recognised and acknowledged. The way we work is to embrace the strengths of diversity within teams and seek team members to support and value all clinicians in the workforce. We support teams to identify their strengths to deliver the core business and show how team working can be enhanced to achieve greater quality for patients and greater productivity. We seek to support all people with unparalled professional development, networking and mentoring. Our view is that the more we develop and support you and your teams strengths and inspire inclusive leadership, the more we can contribute to a greater and better health care service.
We work with health and social care organisations to develop core knowledge of the problem and to identify an intervention that will achieve the results for the organisation. We believe in supporting the staff within the organisation to be co-creators to identifying practical ways to improve the delivery of services for patients. All of our work involves the respectful participation of all stakeholders, with patients and families at the centre of service evaluation and re-design.
We will not reveal the detail of our clients and we will not tout your engagement with us. We will work in confidence to support the development of clinicians at the heart of your organisation to drive forward positive, creative and dynamic workforce teams to deliver safe, effective and patient centred care. We will anonymise case studies on our website.
