​We all need support at times

A medical career is very demanding. Doctors’ Health NSW is a safe and respectful place to discuss personal or professional issues with an experienced GP.

“I do feel better today. Having a chat about things helped. Thank you."

“I really felt good talking to you and I have recommended your service to a colleague.”

“I wish I had known about you earlier. I’m so glad I called today.”

Postvention

The sudden death of a medical colleague can be extremely challenging. Doctors Health NSW is developing a resource to support doctors during this difficult time.
