Life is not straightforward and things can happen both inside and outside work which have an impact on your employment and training. These can range from health issues, family matters, training issues eg struggling with exams, or simply feeling overwhelmed by workload and work life imbalance.
LTHT provides Professional Support for junior doctors and their trainers. We believe that early intervention is essential to prevent a small concern soon becoming a complex problem. It isn’t uncommon for a trainee to face personal or professional difficulties which may impact their training meaning they require additional support.
Trainers and supervisors can refer a trainee for Professional Support when concerns have been identified through supervision and monitoring. Along with this, trainees can also self-refer or pick up the phone to discuss any concerns they may have. The PSU team is made up of medics and non-medics who are experienced in working with post graduate trainees.
