The three Royal Colleges of Physicians in collaboration with the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board launched the Medical Class of 2021 - Post CCT survey on 7 February. This survey was sent to all doctors in the medical specialties in the UK gaining a CCT in 2021.
The RCP is calling for greater support and recognition of specialty and associate specialty doctors (SAS) following a nationwide survey. In particular, all hospitals must fully implement the SAS Charter and SAS development guide in order to address the issues raised.
The RCP has launched its annual '#5minutesto' SAS census, which helps the college influence NHS bodies and the government so that the SAS physician workforce receives the investment, support and recognition required for sustainability and to provide the best patient outcomes.
