Concerned about a colleague?

NHS General Practice is under unprecedented pressure.  As such, we are all at risk of work related stress, burn out and depression.


Often, the symptoms of these are insidious and can be more obvious to those around us than to ourselves.  So, if you have concerns about a colleague and feel that they need our support, we’d like to hear from you.
