New Wellbeing Project to Support General Practice

Publication date: September 2020

Humberside LMCs, supported by YORLMC, are delighted to announce the launch of their new project to improve the wellbeing of GPs and other staff working in general practice in the Humber, Coast and Vale ICS area.

Funded by NHS England, the project will involve developing new services, tools and resources to support wellbeing and enable individuals to look after their own health and know when to seek help before difficulties arise, or be signposted to help if problems have already arisen.

At this time of great stress and pressures for general practice, the wellbeing of people working in local health services – GPs, practice managers and all other practice staff – is particularly important.

The project is being led by Dr Zoe Norris of Humberside LMCs, recently recruited as Wellbeing lead. Dr Norris will be supported by Dr John Bibby of YORLMC whose Wellbeing project is well established. YORLMC is sharing knowledge & contact information to enable development of the project across Humberside. Dr Norris and Dr Bibby are working with their respective LMC teams to develop services in line with local priorities and feedback gathered from those working in general practice.

Services provided through the project will include mentoring for people working in practices, and learning events to support practice staff.

You can find details of resources, services and information for GPs and others working in general practice on our support page at  www.humbersidelmc.org.uk/supportgpspracticemanagers
