Breaking the burnout cycle
Published: 7 November, 2019
The Medical Protection Society have published findings of a survey of its members to better understand the impact work is having on their wellbeing, and therefore patient safety. Among other things 52% were not satisfied with their work/life balance, almost half have considered leaving the profession, and 60% do not feel like their personal wellbeing is a priority of the line manager/GP partner.
Breaking the burnout cycle: Keeping doctors and patients safe makes a number of recommendations, including calling for Wellbeing Guardians to be put in place in every NHS organisation and GP partnership by 2022.
The Personal Resilience page outlines just some of the resources available to support primary care staff across Thames Valley and Wessex.
