Access to confidential counselling, wellbeing app, podcasts, webinars and more
Mental wellbeing is something we all manage on a day-to-day basis. The pressures and demands you face as a doctor, nurse or healthcare professional can make this challenging – more so now than ever before.
It’s not always easy to notice when your mental wellbeing may be suffering or to know what to do to improve it. So, we’re making it easier for you to assess your own wellbeing and get support if you need it.
Whether you want to lower your stress levels, sleep better or reduce burnout, we can help you take positive steps to better mental wellbeing.
We’ve partnered with ICAS International to give you access to immediate practical support. You can download the Hub app for a personalised wellness service and talk one-on-one to a licensed counsellor as part of your membership.

Breaking the burnout cycle
A recent Medical Protection survey of doctors in the UK shows increasing levels of burnout among the profession. Burnout creates problems not just for the doctor as an individual, but it can also impact patients and the wider practice or hospital team.
