RCP welcomes new interim SAS lead

Dr Somaditya Bandyopadhyay took up the role of interim SAS lead on 2 January 2024. 

Sam has been on the RCP SAS Committee since November 2021.  

He said:

‘I was pleasantly surprised when Dr Jamie Read asked me if I would be interested in being the interim lead for the SAS doctors at the RCP. As the interim SAS lead, my primary objective will be to facilitate the college in finding a permanent successor to Dr Read. I would also like to take this opportunity to reach out to the SAS physician members of the college (and beyond). I want to listen to their aspirations and frustrations. Together, we shall achieve our destiny.’

RCP registrar Professor Cathryn Edwards said:

‘It’s a great pleasure to welcome Sam, who has been working proactively with Jamie Read to help deliver the RCP SAS strategy over the last year. He will bring experience of the SAS networks to the role, as well as enthusiastic engagement with our SAS fellows and members.‘
