Concerned woman talks with therapist

A confidential, not for profit, psychotherapeutic consultation service for all doctors.

Although located in London, this service is open to all doctors in the UK. For doctors outside London we offer, after an initial face-to-face session, ongoing video consultations.

DocHealth offers up to six face to face sessions, flexibly applied, with expert signposting to longer term support and liaison with other health services where needed. Our support is always provided by Consultant Medical Psychotherapists.

Treatment interventions are tailored to the individual doctor in the context of a supportive relationship. This can facilitate greater understanding by the doctor of their presenting difficulties, enabling them to regain greater control of their situation. Any doctor using DocHealth has the opportunity to explore difficulties, both professional and personal, with senior clinicians who have the collective experience of treating over 2000 doctors in the last 20 years.

DocHealth is exclusively self-referral, with no report writing unless specifically requested by the doctor using the service. Fees are based on a sliding scale, relating to the grade and circumstances of the doctor.

DocHealth is supported by the British Medical Association (BMA) and the Royal Medical Benevolent Fund (RMBF).
