Foundation doctor produces guidance for doctors on sick leave

Published: 22/06/2011

Rosie Puplett, a foundation doctor from Severn, has produced a guide on practical and financial support for doctors who are on sick leave. Rosie is happy for this to be shared with other Foundation Schools and for them to make local amendments on the basis that her authorship is acknowledged.

Dr Michael Peters, Head of Doctors for Doctors unit, BMA has said:

“Dr Puplett gives sound and sensible advice on coping with illness as a junior doctor. It is important to seek help early and to try and behave like any other patient, and seek advice from your GP or occupational health department. The BMA also offers support through a Counselling and Doctor Advisor service which you can find out about here www.bma.org.uk/doctorsfordoctors”.
