The NHS GP Health Service is a confidential NHS service for GPs and GP trainees in England.
The GP Health Service can help doctors with issues relating to a mental health concern, including stress or depression, or an addiction problem, in particular where these might affect work.
GPH is not a service for individuals with mental health problems which require specialist psychiatric input though we can help provide additional support where we can.
If you think that you have a mental health problem that requires this level of specialist help you must contact your GP to seek help.
GPH is provided by health professionals who have additional expertise in addressing the issues concerning doctors. These clinicians are available in various locations across England. NHSE (our commissioners) require that we are able to offer a clinical assessment within one to two hours travelling time.
Access the service by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0300 0303 300. The service is available 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday and 8am – 2pm Saturday.
An information leaflet is available here.
Please note the service is not for emergency or crisis issues. These should be directed to mainstream NHS.
