The Professional Support and Wellbeing Service (PSW): HEE East Midlands
Our vision is to guide doctors and dentists in training through supportive interventions that make a positive difference to their training and wellbeing.
HEE is committed to providing excellent education and rewarding training programmes for both doctors and dentists. We are aware that training to be a doctor and dentist requires a lot of time, determination, and skill and there will be periods where doctors may require some extra support. This is where the Professional Support and Wellbeing (PSW) service comes in: we provide short-term, solution focused interventions for doctors and dentists in training who are experiencing difficulty progressing in their training. Each doctor or dentist referred to the service has a dedicated PSW Case Manager who arranges support via specialist providers and then monitors their progress. Doctors in training can be referred to the PSW service by either their supervisors or through self-referrals. Support services can range from one-to-one counselling, coaching sessions, study support, dyslexia screening and full diagnostic assessments, or referral to Occupational Health.
