Doc Health: a new confidential support service for doctors

Doctors battling stress-related anxiety and depression will have access to a new specialist-led support service, a joint venture from the RMBF and the British Medical Association (BMA). It is a self-referral service available to all doctors in the UK, and aims to provide confidential, specialist-led support for those suffering with stress-related depression or anxiety. The programme will initially run as a 24-month pilot, and aims to complement existing support services such as BMA Counselling and the Doctor Advisor Service.
 

The Cameron Fund

The Cameron Fund is the only medical benevolent charity which solely supports general practitioners and their dependents. We provide support to GPs and their families in times of financial need, whether through ill-health, disability, death or loss of employment. We help those who are already suffering from financial hardship and those who are facing it.


The Sick Doctors Trust

The Sick Doctors Trust is an independent charitable trust, established in 1996.  They provide early intervention and treatment for doctors suffering from addiction to alcohol or other drugs, thus protecting patients while offering hope, recovery and rehabilitation to affected colleagues and their families.  The Trust welcomes enquiries from any source and are happy to take anonymous calls and to talk to colleagues or members of the family of a doctor who is experiencing problems.  They operate a 24 hour telephone helpline on 0370 4445163 and are supported by donations from Kent LMC.
