This one day UK wide physician health summit aims to bring together learning and experience in delivering care and support to doctors who became unwell, ensuring they can remain in or return to safe, effective clinical practice wherever possible.

The NHS Practitioner Health Programme is a confidential NHS service for Doctors and Dentists with Mental Health and Addiction issues and will be hosting this day aimed at those with an interest or expertise in physician health, and those managing and supporting doctors struggling with health difficulties.

Clinicians delivering care; organisations offering support; Medical Directors, Clinical Directors and HR working with doctors; and practitioners themselves will all benefit from an increased understanding of the issues facing doctors who are unwell, the best strategies to support and treat them and how to reduce and prevent ill health in the medical workforce.

Topics will include:

  • the need and economic case for Physician Health Services
  • the services currently available
  • the issues for particular high incidence practitioner groups
  • how individuals can cope and techniques for prevention

Participants will have the opportunity to; engage with colleagues in Masterclasses facilitated by experts in physician health; consider local and national strategies to support physician health; consider their own, and colleagues needs and how these can be met.
