“Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity” -

-Hippocrates

Working and training in the health professions, we all do a challenging job, often under great time and resource pressures. It is so important that the love of humanity and care for our patients should extend to care of ourselves, for our wellbeing is the first and arguably the most important tool in allowing us to do what we do. The workplace culture is changing and through the broader services we offer through the Professional Support and Wellbeing Service (PSU) we want to be at the forefront of that.

 

All the options for wellbeing support can be confusing and overwhelming at times, especially so when one is already stressed and tired. We have heard your concerns about that and this Professional Support and Wellbeing Resource hub is the work  of Aisling Higham, HETV Trainee Improvement Fellow. We hope that is makes the options clear and easier to navigate. Look after yourselves, and each other.
