SAS Week Day 5 | Equalities and MWRES

Whilst this is national SAS Week, the RCOG also recognises the contributions and achievements of another group of doctors working in our specialty, locally employed doctors (LEDs).

Many doctors working in locally employed posts are from overseas and are employed on temporary local contracts, without the security and benefits of national contract terms and conditions that our consultants, SAS and doctors in training have.

Find out more about the differences between SAS and LEDs here.

Below you will find the case studies of Dr Sarah El Khatim, who was previously working as a locally employed doctor and has now taken up a SAS contract, and Dr Anjana Mackeen who is currently working as a clinical fellow, a type of locally employed post.
