Mental health and wellbeing
The BOA is very aware that the COVID-19 situation can cause stress and anxiety for health professionals. We would like to highlight to all members that the following resources are available to support frontline health professionals, and encourage you to take up these services if you feel the need:
- https://people.nhs.uk/help (A phoneline is available 7am-11pm, seven days a week, and text service available 24/7).
The Benevolent Fund exists to relieve poverty among members of the Association, their widows and their children and to assist in the education of such children. The Fund is therefore intended to meet the needs of our members and their families who find themselves in distressed circumstances. Please visit our page here for further information.
