NHS Practitioner Health Programme

The (PHP) provides advice, assessment and case management services for doctors with health concerns that relate to a mental health or addiction problem or a physical health problem which may impact on the doctor’s performance. Doctors approaching the PHP have the same rights to confidentiality as any other patient.

Communication between the PHP and the Communitybaptistpa is based on an overriding duty to protect patients, while, protecting confidential health information about individual doctors.

Areas of information sharing include:

  • Discussions about how best to manage concerns about a doctor, point of referral or post-referral to either organisation
  • Sharing method development, policies and procedures in relation to the assessment and supervision of doctors who are unwell
  • Communications and educational initiatives
  • Evaluation and research
  • Access to specialist expertise

This agreement has been in place since December 2004, and was reviewed in June 2014.
