How can we help?

Welcome to the Medic Support Service

We are a free, confidential, NHS psychological therapy service for doctors, dentists and pharmacists in postgraduate training across the Thames Valley (Oxford Deanery). We offer brief CBT as well as signposting to other forms of support.

“The Medic Support service has been exceptional. The self-referral process was easy to navigate with a short waiting list. The sessions I had were excellent and have made a huge difference in my happiness and performance at work. I am so grateful to the service. Thank you.”
