Mental health support for NHS doctors and dentists

23/10/2019

All NHS doctors and dentists in England now have access to a comprehensive mental health service, the government has announced.

More than 180,000 doctors and dentists can get confidential advice and support, in person or over the phone, if they’ve faced a stressful incident at work or feel they are struggling with their mental health. Staff can access support 24/7 through a dedicated phone line and a crisis text service available through the night. The service is currently staffed by 200 experts whose training is tailored to understand the specific circumstances of clinical life.
