COVID19 Peer Support (CPS) Programme
Date published: 07/04/2020
Leeds LMC understands that GPs working on the frontline during the COVID19 emergency are under immense pressure with regards to both workload and emotional strain. You maybe be aware that Leeds LMC launched a GP mentoring pilot last year; the pilot has been hugely successful and we would now like to flex this programme to provide GPs with quick and easy access to peer support at this difficult time.
Leeds LMC and YORLMC have worked collaboratively to create a hub that will deliver the ‘COVID19 Peer Support Programme’ (CPS) to offer virtual peer support to GPs via video calling facilities. The support will be provided on a 1:1 basis by trained GP mentors usually in 30 minute one-off sessions; however longer sessions and follow up sessions can be arranged as required on a case by case basis.
This service is available to all GPs in the Leeds LMC area, including trainee GPs. GPs who have previously accessed the GP mentoring service can access the COVID19 Peer Support Service.
If you would like to arrange a call with one of our GP mentors, or if you would like more information, please contact: Jodie McNeil / Kate Gagen, Leeds LMC Joint Executive Officers by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
