Stress levels among primary care staff
Published: 24 August, 2016
A poll over 1000 NHS workers in primary care by the mental health charity Mind showed that almost nine in ten find their work is currently the most stressful area of their lives, ahead of their finances, health, family life and relationships, and has a significant impact on their physical health. Resulting issues include unhealthy coping mechanisms (such as alcohol and smoking) and fear of disclosing their stress levels in the workplace.

The poll is part of the “Find the Words” campaign by Mind to provide mental health support across primary care.
