Health & Wellbeing

GP health and wellbeing in the workplace


There's a vast range of support available for health and wellbeing in the workplace. Whether it's advice for managing mental health, work-life balance or overall wellbeing, there's always someone to talk to. Here are some support services that could help with occupational or GP health, for yourself or another colleague.

GP Health Service & Occupational Health


The NHS GP Health Service (GPH) is for GPs and GP trainees across England, with issues relating to mental health concerns, such as stress, depression or addiction, often where it might be affecting their work. Although this service is not for individuals with mental health problems which require specialist psychiatric input, additional support can be provided by GPH where possible.

For more information on the service, please see the GPH leaflet (link below). The GPH operates by self-referral only, so if you’d like support, contact the GP Health Service via email, phone or by completing the self-referral form on their website.

In addition to the GP Health Service, Salford Royal provide the Occupational Health service for all GPs in the North West. Services offered include:

- sickness absence

- innoculation injury management

- hepatitis B vaccinations

- pre-placement screening

Please note: A review of occupational health service provision is taking place nationally and we don’t know how long this will take. The Salford Royal GPH service is still in place until further notice.
