Social Media Guidance: Although medical professionals should be free to take advantage of the many personal and professional benefits that social media can offer, it is important that they are aware of the potential risks involved.

Practical and Financial Support for Doctors: If you have been signed off sick for any amount of time it can be difficult to adjust to your new circumstances. There is often a lot of help and support available from your trust or deanery, and organisations such as the BMA, but information on financial support may be difficult to find and can be confusing.  The information here is intended as a guide and there may be things that have been omitted – it is always useful to talk to as many people as possible and ask for help if you need it!

Health for Health Professionals: The Health for Health Professionals (HHP) is a face to face counselling service to all doctors in Wales. You can access free and confidential advice between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Phone 0800 058 2738.
