GPs should have access to a ‘Samaritans-style’ mental health service, says HEE

Comment

Like treating bleeding oesophageal varices with a mop. NHS GP Health already exists and has been very busy since it started in 2017. It's being rolled out for all doctors soon. NHSE/'The Centre' fails to recognise how its culture of blame and fear is at odds with its alleged desire to create psychological safety within the NHS. Myriad reasons are behind why these very resilient individuals are now breaking. It will take many systemic changes to mend things. We need to look at places and practices where GPs aren't breaking, and ask why it's working.
