Fee structure

Group of people.

This service is largely funded by contributions from the BMA and RMBF. It is a not for profit organisation independent from NHS funding. However a fee structure and contributions from doctors using DocHealth are important in supporting the provision of this dedicated service.

DocHealth is a new confidential, not for profit, psychotherapeutic consultation service for all doctors. Although located in London the service is open to all doctors in the UK. It is supported by the British Medical Association (BMA) and the Royal Medical Benevolent Fund (RMBF). The doctor using DocHealth will have an opportunity to explore difficulties, both professional and personal, with senior clinicians who have the collective experience of treating over 2000 doctors in the last 20 years.  For doctors living a considerable distance from London we are able to offer, after the initial face-to-face consultation, further consultations by skype.

The service offers up to six face to face sessions, flexibly applied, with expert signposting to longer term support and liaison with other health services where needed. Treatment interventions are tailored to the individual practitioner in the context of a supportive relationship. This will facilitate greater understanding by the doctor of his or her presenting difficulties, thus enabling the doctor to regain greater control of their situation. DocHealth is exclusively self-referral, with no report writing unless specifically requested by the doctor using the service. Fees are based on a sliding scale relating to the grade and circumstances of the doctor. The aim is to develop regional hubs if the pilot project is successful.
