SSAS Terms of Reference
SSAS Roles and Responsibilities

Representatives for SSAS Committee

We are looking for enthusiastic SSAS doctors to join the SSAS committee. There are currently three vacancies.  This is an exciting opportunity to represent our workforce.

The successful doctor would participate in four committee meetings a year – two face to face and two conference calls. Your employing organisation would need to endorse the time needed for the committee meetings and any other work.

You may also be required to represent the SSAS committee on other groups within the APM.

You would be mentored through the process, so there is no expectation that you will have carried out committee work before. This would give you the opportunity to work alongside other SSAS doctors in Specialist Palliative Medicine from other areas of the United Kingdom and develop your management and leadership skills, which would then be of benefit to you and your organisation.

Please contact either of the co-chairs of the committee for further information.
