Medical Minds: Surveying the mental wellbeing of general practitioners in the UK

Last updated:

Demand in general practice has reached unprecedented levels in recent times. With it, work-related stress and burnout in doctors has continued to increase, impacting health and wellbeing.

For our whitepaper, Medical Minds, Livi commissioned a quantitative survey of GPs working across the UK to find out more, exploring the causes, impacts and what could be improved going forwards.

We uncovered that in addition to the workforce crisis facing the healthcare system, there is also a wellbeing crisis. More support is urgently needed to support the medical minds of clinicians and ensure the future sustainability of primary care.

  • How GPs describe their current mental wellbeing

  • The leading causes of poor mental wellbeing

  • What clinicians regard as the biggest stressors

The paper also contains 7 recommendations to support clinical mental wellbeing.
