For the first time, there will be a dedicated career development platform for the SAS workforce who will be supported by their Trust SAS Lead and a dedicated NIMDTA (Northern Ireland Medical and Dental Training Association) SAS Associate Dean.

Claire has worked with the Trust for three years and is passionate about the vital role that SAS doctors and dentists play in delivering safe, high-quality patient care.

Dr Brady will support the Trust’s Medical Leadership team in representing the SAS staff body, quality-assuring medical appraisal and co-ordinating development needs across specialties.
