The Royal Pharmaceutical Society is supporting work to help raise awareness about the impact workplace pressures can have on people working in primary care.

Mind, the mental health charity, wants to film primary care staff who are willing to discuss the pressures they face, how it affects their own mental health and also to share experiences about getting support. The film will be part of a campaign to improve the mental health support within primary care, said the RPS.

“We understand that the pressures on primary care are not just impacting on the mental health of patients, but also on the staff working in these services,” it added. Recent surveys of primary care staff have “uncovered high rates of burn out and unmanageable stress amongst GPs, and other primary care staff including practice nurses, pharmacists, practice managers and receptionists.”

To help highlight the issue and to support the Mind campaign, the Society is asking for members’ to consider participating in the filming. Contributions will be used “to highlight the need to address pressures in primary care and to ensure all primary care staff get support for their own mental health. We’ll be using this film to ask others to tell us how Mind could support the mental health of primary care staff.”

People will be selected by Mind after completing a form and giving a brief outline of their experiences and why they would like to appear in the film.
