One of the LMC’s core role is that of pastoral support for GPs. 

If you are struggling with a challenging situation in the practice or struggling with life in general, then the LMC can support you. Support is open to all GPs working as either a partner, salaried or locum GP in Gwent. 

We will also provide a support role before, during and after performance issues. These processes can be extremely stressful, and GPs can come to us for confidential support. 

We offer one-to-one support either virtually or face to face and we can help you find the right help for your needs. 

If you feel that you would benefit from our support, then please FILL IN THE FORM or alternatively contact the office on 01495 820106.  Please be reassured that we are used to dealing with highly confidential situations and information shared with us does not get shared outside of the Chair, Medical Secretary or Company Secretary unless we have your permission or if there is a risk to self or others or if GMC regulations obligate us. 

The BMA has published guidance on wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The guidance aims to help doctors and medical students working under extraordinary and challenging circumstances to look after their own health and wellbeing.
