Frequently Asked Questions

People belonging to the "MEDSAC" membership category (i.e. MEDSAC Doctor, MEDSAC Paediatrician, MEDSAC Nurse Practitioner and MEDSAC Nurse) can access the EAF. If you belong to a SAATS service, but do not hold this category of membership, we suggest that you approach your Lead Clinician to lodge any questions on your behalf.

You can ask any questions regarding SAATS - clinical, non-clinical or admin-related.

The expert advice forum requests are monitored during normal business hours. You can request a preferred timeframe for which to receive a response: 2 working days, 1 week or 1 month.

At the time of lodging your request, you can indicate if you would like to receive a response via email or phone.
