OUCAGS Forum: Survive and Thrive - nonsense or necessity

Dr Sara McDouall works as a Consultant Anaesthetist at the Royal Berkshire Hospital and is currently HEE-TV’s higher specialty Training Programme Director for Anaesthetics. She has been instrumental in establishing the Professional Support and Wellbeing Service Survive and Thrive programme. This programme recognises the pressures that doctors face in the NHS and aims to help trainees to work differently through more helpful ways of thinking and coping in challenging situations, systems and interactions with others, whilst maintaining still compassion and career enjoyment.
