Supporting the wellbeing of general practitioners

This is an excerpt taken from the RACGP webpage - GP Support Program for RACGP members: RACGP Support program

The GP Support Program is a free service offered by the RACGP in line with the college's commitment to foster a culture of self care amongst general practitioners. It is available to all Australian RACGP members who are registered medical practitioners, regardless of where you live or work. Members can access professional advice to help cope with life's stressors which may include personal and work related issues that can impact on their wellbeing, work performance, safety, workplace morale and psychological health.  
The GP Support Program can provide help to RACGP members with a range of issues, including:

  • handling work pressures
  • managing conflict
  • grief and loss
  • relationship issues
  • concerns about children
  • anxiety and depression
  • alcohol and drug issues
  • traumatic incidents.
