Workplace and workforce issues for SAS/LEDs

Workplace Behaviour Champions for SAS/LED

There’s a Workplace Behaviour Champion in every school/deanery to help take forward our work to address undermining and bullying in the workplace.

See the RCOG's page on Improving workplace behaviours and dealing with undermining and bullying.

The Champions are primarily a resource for trainees who want independent advice about any unacceptable behaviour they’re experiencing. They also support SAS doctors and Locally Employed Doctors in their role.

We hope SAS and LE Doctors who are experiencing undermining will feel able to approach the Champions early, so we can identify and address issues as soon as possible. If the doctor works in the same unit as their local Champion and find external support more appropriate, they can contact Champions from neighbouring schools/deaneries.
