BMA Wellbeing Resources for GPs

Last updated Monday 22nd November 2021

Looking after your wellbeing is crucial in these trying times. Dealing with an unsafe and unsustainable workload, the public shaming from parts of the press and the rising tide of abuse that GPs have had to endure makes this increasingly challenging.

Sources of support for your wellbeing:

In addition to their own wellbeing services, the BMA also signposts to a range of other organisations, services, websites and helplines on our sources of support page. Whether you are struggling with stress, grief, or looking for legal advice, use this resource to find support online, on the phone, and in your local area.

UK directory of services:

Also available is their UK directory of wellbeing support services specifically for doctors, a crucial resource that is here for you when you need it. Services are also listed by region to help you find support locally.
