Professional Support and Well-being

Professional Support and Well-being (PSW) provides a holistic and collaborative approach in addressing concerns raised whilst ensuring that patient safety, the safety of the referred trainee and others is not compromised.

The PSW supports trainees, trainers and others throughout this process to ensure the referred trainee receives the required additional support and development to enable them to complete training and effectively contribute to delivering high quality patient care now and in the future.

Anyone involved with a trainees educational programme can refer a trainee to the PSW, by completing the PSW Referral Form, and are encouraged to make the referral in a timely manner in order for the appropriate interventions to be put in place before the trainee’s anticipated end of training date. All referrals should be discussed with the trainee.
