6 The Royal College of Surgeons of England understands the concerns of NCCG doctors and welcomes the opportunity to address their unmet needs and aspirations. The College believes that practising surgeons in all career grades should meet the same standards of clinical and technical competence, regardless of job title. NCCG doctors recognise that many of their colleagues wish to assume responsibilities other than direct clinical care. These tasks, which may include training, research, basic science, examining, and direction of clinical departments or hospital management, require additional training and skills extending beyond those needed for clinical practice. Choice and Opportunity; Modernising Medical Careers for Non Consultant Career Grade Doctors: Response to the Department of Health’s consultation document. RCSE Publication. October 2003.

7 The Royal College Agenda for SAS doctors Recommendation Three A system of limited accreditation of competencies is required through which NCCGs with formally recognised skills can work independently at the appropriate level. Accreditation would be expressed in terms of a level of competency and must be done against national standards. Accreditation is specialty-specific. It would enable NCCGs to work in a role consistent with their formally recognised skills according to the requirements of the post they occupy.

8 The Royal College Agenda for SAS doctors  The College is currently investigating how SAS surgeons can be allowed to use the ISCP.  Ms Hardiment is investigating whether some of the DH £12m can be used by SHA’s to recruit an SAS Programme Director and a network of SAS Tutors to act as Educational Supervisors. The use of ISCP remains optional for SAS surgeons as it would be unsuitable for some of the more senior surgeons.
