National GP Health Service
It is important that GPs receive the support they require to remain fit and mentally healthy to cope with the demands of the job. This is recognised both locally and nationally; a healthy workforce is vital in order to provide safe and quality care for patients.
The NHS GP Health Service is a confidential NHS service for GPs and GP trainees in England.
The GP Health Service can help with issues relating to a mental health concern, including stress or depression, or an addiction problem, in particular where these might affect work.
The service is self-referral. It is provided by health professionals specialising in mental health support to doctors and is available in various locations across England.
Access the service by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0300 0303 300. The service is available 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday and 8am – 2pm Saturday.
Please note the service is not for emergency or crisis issues. These should be directed to mainstream NHS.
