Doctors and dentists are like everyone else and encounter all types of health problems. The focus of this programme is on early intervention, to support the health of doctors and dentists so that wherever possible they can continue providing safe and valued care to their patients. There is a tendency for doctors and dentists to manage their own health problems, to self medicate, to chat informally to colleagues etc. rather than seek a proper consultation and treatment. For this reason many problems go unreported or unrecognised. This service seeks to provide a way that doctors and dentists can access support and advice that they need in a confidential and understanding environment.
