Private Medical Operations
According to the NHS waiting times guide, the maximum waiting time for non-urgent consultant-led treatments is 18 weeks from the day your appointment is booked through the referral system.
Research has shown that many staff absences are caused by staff awaiting an operation on the NHS, but due to the length of the waiting list and their level of discomfort they are unable to continue with their work duties. SAS work to reduce waiting times for non-urgent operations, enabling staff to return to their usual duties sooner.
SAS are also one of the only staff absence protection providers to supply private medical operations to school staff with the aim of reducing wait times for operations and ultimately absence. Private Medical Operations are a part of SAS Wellbeing, which is complimentary with our staff absence insurance policies.
