The Suspended Medics webinar

  • What would you do if you were suspended from clinical practice tomorrow for an undefined period of time?
  • What would be your source of income?
  • Who would you go to seek help? Do you trust them to help you?
  • How would you feel?

In light of recent events, we’re reminded of how vulnerable doctors are in this current climate.

Punitive measures for honest mistakes, or events beyond the control of the doctor, seem to be increasingly common, leaving every doctor wondering,

“Am I next?”

The fear we have about this process is caught up in several factors including;

  • lack of education regarding the procedures
  • uncertainty of outcomes
  • media coverage
  • reported suicides amongst doctors during the suspension process
  • loss of income and professional identity
  • lack of social support in a relatively isolating experience
  • reports of being portrayed as a villain / guilty until proven otherwise

Considering this has always previously been a topic of taboo, we are pleased to present the recording of an essential webinar – first of it’s kind, to educate doctors on:


We cover:

  • An overview of the UK suspension process
  • Key points you MUST do to keep yourself as protected as possible
  • Wellbeing services available designed for doctors
  • Options to sustain an income / continue working in a capacity, whilst suspended
