Support for Trainees

Being a doctor in training can be demanding and stressful from both a personal and professional perspective. We want you to know that we will support you through any potential issues you may be facing. It’s important to request support or advice early on rather than struggle in silence. If you need to discuss any issues the first port of call would be either Mandy Price ( or your small group TPD.
