Support for doctors

Doctors are constantly exposed to stresses and hazards that can impair their relationships and themselves: working long hours, fatigue, sleep deprivation, consumer demands, secondary traumatic stress, consequences of mistakes, debt, demands of external bodies (including the Council and colleges), fear of complaints and litigation, and infectious diseases.

Anecdotal comments suggest there is reluctance by many doctors to report health concerns about colleagues or themselves to the Council because of the possible impact on a doctor’s career and ability to practise.
