The NHS plans to launch a new national occupational health service from next April to support general practitioners experiencing burnout and stress.
A national service specification based on successful local programmes will form part of a wider, major new drive from NHS England to improve the health and wellbeing of NHS staff. The scheme will include serving healthier food, offering health checks in the workplace, and promoting physical activity among staff.
