Dr Natalie Lyth
Clinical Director/Consultant Paediatrician
Harrogate District Foundation Trust
I was delighted to be appointed the SAS Tutor at Harrogate District Foundation Trust in July 2015. It is a privilege to work with and offer support to such an enthusiastic and hard working group of doctors. In the past I have been both a Staff Grade doctor and an Associate Specialist and therefore understand some of the benefits and challenges of being an SAS doctor. As an SAS doctor I chaired the RCPCH national SAS committee. In this role I managed to secure SAS representatives on the RCPCH Council so the SAS voice could be heard. Currently I am on the CESR committee of RCPCH and assess article 14 applications. In HDFT we have an active SAS forum that meets quarterly and I take issues raised to HDFT Board so the whole organisation gets to hear the great work our SAS doctors do.
