Particularly at a time of unprecedented change and uncertainty. We provide a safe, confidential, energising place for one hour - to share, unload and reignite. We run the highly interactive workshops with small break out groups on Zoom.
We now run bespoke Mobile Doctors’ Mess and Nurses' Nexus events for national conferences.
Consultant in Sleep Medicine Dr Mike Farquhar joins us to discuss his work in raising awareness of issues and challenges faced by young people who identify as LGBT+, particularly when accessing NHS healthcare.
A few things really stood out for me:
- It fulfilled the need of talking about how things were going. This was sadly missing at work due to PPE and limited social contact due to the pandemic.
- The hour achieved so much and there were really useful weekly themes (e.g. Seligman) coupled with breakout rooms.
- Talking with doctors from outside my specialty and from primary care was refreshing and brought new perspectives.
- The experience was confidential and well run by the organisers.
I am pleased to say that discovering Doctors’ Mess has been an unexpected positive during the pandemic.
Coaching legend Jenny Rogers will join us to discuss her new book 'Are You Listening? Stories from a coaching life'.
