In the face of unprecedented pressures, the landscape of the NHS is changing and the centre of gravity is moving rapidly towards primary care. As a result of the 2019 GP contract changes, including primary care networks and the NHS Long Term plan there is a move to address the challenges that GPs and practices are currently facing in terms of workload and workforce. At the same time the number of GPs and healthcare professionals suffering from burnout is increasing, with the 2019 LMC UK conference highlighting the tragic GP suicide rate and a recent BMA study finding that 40% of doctors are currently experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, burnout, stress, emotional distress or a mental health condition that is impacting on their work.
YORLMC is committed to providing it’s constituents with the support they require and is currently developing a wellbeing and resilience strategy. More information on YORLMC’s wellbeing strategy and the services it will offer will be shared shortly. In the meantime YORLMC has organised 2 wellbeing seminars in October for GPs, Practice Managers and other primary care staff, which aim to help healthcare professionals and their colleagues to recognise the signs of burnout; understand the importance of their own wellbeing; and provide practical workshops sessions providing support/techniques on how to reduce the risk of burnout and stress in the workplace.
Further details of the wellbeing seminars can be found in the attached flyer, and the full agenda is attached. YORLMC will not charge a fee for these events however we do request a £20 donation on booking (collected by YORLMC) to the Cameron Fund – the GP’s own charity – which provides support to current and retired GPs, as well as their families, in times of financial distress, whether through ill-health, disability, death or loss of employment.
