“The last taboo in the NHS is the acknowledgement that doctors also have mental health problems and that they are not immune to the pressures we all face…We have shown that if you offer an accessible, confidential service then doctors will come for treatment, and not just come, they get better.” Dr Clare Gerada, Medical Director, NHS Practitioner Health Service October 2018

“An expanded Practitioner Health Programme will help all NHS doctors access specialist mental health support, providing a safe, confidential non-stigmatising service to turn to when they are struggling and need help. This means the NHS will have the most comprehensive national mental health support offer to doctors of any health system in the world” NHS Long Term Plan January 2019
