Strategy for Doctors’ Health and Wellbeing 2018-2012

The national Strategy for Doctors’ Health and Wellbeing 2018-2021 contains recommended standards designed for medical students, Non-Consultant Hospital Doctors, Consultant/Senior Doctor Medical Personnel and General Practitioners (GPs). The Strategy was prepared by the Workplace Health and Wellbeing Unit of the HSE HR Division.

More than 30 healthcare professionals were part of the project team which developed the strategy. These included representation from third level colleges, regulatory bodies, hospital administrators, doctors at all grades and specialities, medical students, educators, professional associations and representative bodies.

The Strategy includes standards adapted from, and endorsed by, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. They have been created to support and maintain the health and wellbeing of doctors in their various workplaces and throughout their working lives.
