Professional Support and Well-being Service



NHS England is committed to providing excellent education and training for doctors and dentists in its postgraduate training programmes.

Despite training being rewarding, there are occasions where a trainee may need some extra support to help them through a difficult situation.

The Professional Support and Wellbeing service recognise that training to become a Consultant or GP takes considerable time, determination, effort and skill. During this time trainees will inevitably undergo periods where they need additional support. This may be as a result of encountering adverse clinical events, experiencing a variety of wider life events or struggling with concerns relating to training and / or career progression. 

It is recognised that there are times when trainees would benefit from increased and specialist support, beyond which the clinical and educational supervisor can provide. The Professional Support and Well-being service is able to provide this support for both trainees and their educators.
