Support

There are increasing pressures associated with being a Junior Doctor; getting the job done, working relationships with colleagues and consultants, uncertainties about personal and professional progress, arranging future jobs and career decisions, worries about finance, examinations or personal and domestic problems.

Everyone at some stage needs help and support with these issues; whether that is from their family, friends or an external source. There are several opportunities available to help you work through some of these problems.

The BMA offer a counselling service for all its members. This is a 24 hour telephone help line which can be accessed on 08454 200169. This is for telephone communication only. If they consider that professional help is required they will put you in touch with a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) counsellor, which you will have to pay for.
