Pastoral Care & Well-being

On those tough days, we’re here to listen, we’re here for you

Never be left alone... we are here for you

Having challenges in the workplace? Having a tough time at university or in your personal life? Just need somebody to talk to?

It really is tough out there. This is an additional service commissioned by the LinkMedics Academy to support the mental health and well-being of healthcare professionals.

This service is provided at no-cost and is open to ALL healthcare professionals and students around the globe, whenever you may need it.

For those currently enrolled onto a LinkMedics programme

When you are placed with LinkMedics, you always have a member of our team who you can turn to!

As well as your clinical and educational supervisors in Trust, you will be assigned with LinkMedics mentors who will always be there to guide you from their own lived experiences. When in hospital, you will never be expected to make any “big” decisions by yourself, you will always have seniors who you can ask for support. You will always be supervised by senior doctors working in your department who will be there for you for support and guidance. All of our partner Trusts have been briefed of the extra level of support you may require as an overseas trained doctor coming to work in the NHS.

You will be provided with appropriate personal protective equipment when required, such as glasses, gloves and protective footwear. If you are in a surgical specialty, you will be provided with sterile scrubs to change into when required. You shouldn’t wear them outside of the hospital due to infection control. You will receive on-going support from induction to employment and our team will be on-hand 24/7 to assist you during placement.

Beyond your induction, you are assigned mentor for the duration of your employment period. This mentor will check in with you every month to see how you are getting on and generally share advice and guidance.

Although these services are available, you have to be proactive! It is up you, to reach out to our team for support, guidance and mentorship!

This service is completely free of charge.
