GPs to access free burnout service from January 2017


Hypothetical scenario: Troubled Doctor:"I found the job so stressful that I have developed a drink/drug (eithers applicable)problem and I need help to get back to wellness". Counsellor (placing sheet of paper under Troubled Doctors face): "Are these details, including your GMC number correct? Yes? Can you excuse me one moment?" Counsellor exits stage left and makes a quick phone call to the GMC. Next scene- taking place in Troubled Doctors home. Troubled Doctors Wife:"Honey, there's an official looking-letter here from the GMC for you.I'll leave it on the table for you". I will leave scene 3 of this gripping play to your imagination.
