The last few months have seen Doctors alongside all NHS staff under extraordinary pressure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“More than two fifths of doctors say they are suffering from burnout, depression or anxiety amid the coronavirus pandemic.”


“Healthcare workers face stressors and difficulties at the best of times, but in these times of Covid19, these feelings may be heightened by worries over uncertainty and the unknown.”

NHS Practitioner Health Service

“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
