Supporting the wellbeing of GPs
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners is committed to supporting members in their pursuit of clinical excellence and ensuring that general practice remains a satisfying and rewarding vocation. The college also recognises that maintaining a healthy work/life balance is essential for general practitioners to create the best possible practice environment for our members and the patients we serve.
From time to time issues arise in our lives that cause concern. They can lead to sleepless nights, an inability to stay focused, feeling down generally and a sense that we have no control. Regardless of where they come from, they can weigh us down and affect all areas of life including our ability to function well at work.
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 RACGP members 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.
