This hybrid conference focuses on Enhancing Resilience, Reducing Stress & Supporting the Wellbeing of Doctors. Following the recent GMC commissioned report ‘Caring for Doctors, Caring for Patients’ the conference addresses how we can meet the recommendations of this report and work more  to deliver effective resilience and wellbeing programmes to support doctors and other clinical staff working in the NHS. 

“Medicine is a tough job, but we make it far harder than it should be by neglecting the simple basics in caring for doctors’ wellbeing. The wellbeing of doctors is vital because there is abundant evidence that workplace stress in healthcare organisations affects quality of care for patients as well as doctors’ own health ”

“Over a third of doctors working in secondary care also indicated that they’d been unwell as a result of work-related stress in the previous year.”
