The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges has launched a resource for doctors that signposts different organisations that can provide support for those working in healthcare.
The Academy believes it is vital that all doctors and NHS professionals support one another by providing an environment that encourages and enables us to make choices that promote healthy lives and wellbeing. We need well doctors so that patients receive the best care and management possible. Colleges have a leadership role within the profession to help provide or direct doctors to the right sources of support.
If doctors are looking for support there are a range of organisations, services and websites which can offer help. The links on our new webpages signpost support available here.
Chair of the Academy, Professor Carrie MacEwen has written a blog explaining the thinking behind this initiative, which can be accessed here.
