our corporate objectives

4 – Raise awareness
Raise awareness of these issues in the public domain to encourage society to have an improved consideration and understanding of the medical profession that cares for them.
(Click on the arrows to scroll)
Our primary goal is to reduce stigma, change behaviours & cultures and promote the values of good leadership to reduce the prevalance of burn-out and suicide amongst medical doctors of all disciplines working in the NHS. We will....
1 – Culture Change
Positively campaign for culture change within the medical profession and NHS to remove the stigma associated with Doctor burn-out resulting from them having heavy workloads and operating in a high pressure and stressful environment.
2 – Organisational Responsibility
Encourage a wider organisational responsibility for the working environments of doctors that include the value of their mental wellbeing for the positive benefit of the NHS, its workforce and the patients they serve.
3 – Confidential Resources
Independently and without prejudice, direct doctors to approved and secure confidential resources so that they can get help when dealing with wellbeing/burn-out/stress issues.

1/3 Really shocked today to find out that @GPHotTopics included my @bmj_latest whooping cough review article published in February this year!

Circulation to 18000 GPs this year alone! #whygp #teamgp @RcgpFaculties @TeamGP

Hopefully we can get better at diagnosing it!

When a doctor or medical student kill themselves, I'm heartbroken at the death of those who devoted so much to patients.

I often defend our profession against attacks like 'Doctors are terrible at diagnosing/don't care/listen etc' regularly.

These things are connected.
