Doctors’ mental health scheme extended

NHS chief Simon Stevens has announced a new mental health support scheme to cover all doctors working in the NHS.

A new scheme aimed at all doctors in England will support  approximately 110,000 more doctors. The existing scheme for GPs and trainees suffering from mental health issues was launched in early 2017. Of the 1,500 GPs already treated by NHS GP health service three quarters have been able to return to work.
