GP counselling, GPs for GPs and LMC representative support

The NHS Highland GPs for GPs scheme provides a confidential service to General Practitioners and their families at times of stress or illness, when they have difficulty going to their own GP.  In the past it has supported GP’s with problems such as stress, depression, inability to cope, marital problems, bereavement and gynae and other medical problems.
