GPs to access free burnout service from January 2017

Comment

As a psychotherapist with many years experience of working with doctors, I am clear (a) that there may be other, private and personal factors involved in psychological problems and at the same time that (b) no therapist worth his/her salt would treat burnout/stress without trying to support and encourage their client to take the problem where it belongs - unions, managers, etc. I hope this service provides proper, anonymous and confidential feedback channels for the issues its therapists encounter and that they will be properly briefed so that they do not make the mistake of blaming the patient for the system's failings.
