The Screening Assessment and Accreditation (SAAS) facilitates the assessment of endoscopists who apply to work on the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme (BSCP). 

To ensure endoscopists working within the programme are of a consistently high standard, all endoscopists must be accredited. On behalf of the NHS, JAG provide the quality assurance and administration of BCSP accreditation. This entails overseeing the governance and responsibility for competence within the bowel screening programme, the hosting of the BSCP MCQ Panel, supporting BCSP Accreditation of colonoscopy and FS screeners at assessment and screening centres. From the initial application to taking the MCQ exam, the SAAS website is used throughout all stages of the assessment process. Beyond housing learning resources for candidates, the SAAS website is used by the JAG team to publish exam results. 

For those interested in applying, please note that applications are only accepted from candidates who are attached to a Screening Centre and have been approved to go forward with the accreditation process by the National Cancer Screening Programmes Office. Please contact your Screening Centre Director in the first instance.

Full details of the accreditation process and standards can be found in the guidelines in the Downloads tab.
