The Professional Support and Wellbeing Service (PSW)

(HEE Midlands: East Midlands Office)



HEE are committed to providing excellent education and rewarding training programmes for both doctors and dentists. We are also aware that training to be a doctor and dentist requires a lot of time, determination, and skill. It’s no mean feat, and there are periods where trainees may require some extra support. This is where the Professional Support & Wellbeing service comes in. The Professional Support and Wellbeing service (PSW) provides short-term, solution focussed interventions for trainee doctors and dentists who are having difficulty progressing in their training. Each trainee referred to the service has a dedicated PSW case manager who arranges support via specialist providers and then monitors their progress

Our Vision… 

“Guide junior doctors and dentists through supportive interventions that make a positive different to their training and wellbeing”

Trainees can be referred to the PSW by both supervisors and through self referrals. For more information please see our ‘Making a Referral’ page.
