Practitioner Health Matters Programme The Practitioner Health Matters Programme is a confidential resource that offers support and care to doctors who are under stress or are experiencing a mental health, alcohol or substance misuse issue. They can also offer advice and support to the colleagues of health practitioners who are experiencing problems.

Doctors Health Matters (Medical Council) Doctors can also be referred to the Medical Council’s Health Committee, whose primary role is to monitor and support doctors in maintaining their registration during times of illness/disability. Managers should be vigilant in recognising when a doctor is in difficulty following an adverse event, trauma and when experiencing burnout. Initial support such as RAPID first aid should be offered to doctors who are experiencing mental health difficulties.

Doctors’ Health (ICGP) The ICGP Doctors’ Health in Practice Programme was established in March 2000. It aims to promote and support the good physical health, occupational health, psychological health and wellbeing of GPs. It encourages primary health care for doctors’ healthcare in the first instance and supports the aim that every GP should have a GP. The healthcare networks and helpline can also be accessed by GPs’ families so that GPs can avoid treating their own family members, and the email service can be accessed by practice staff, for example for health and safety issues.
