Stress has always been a feature of everyday life for people in all professions. But the demands on healthcare professionals can put them under particular pressure because of the responsibility for the well-being of their patients.
Added to these stresses are those caused by receiving and dealing with complaints, clinical negligence claims, disciplinary matters, and other dento-legal issues, and our counselling service has been introduced specifically to assist members suffering from stress.
The counselling service is provided independently by ICAS. ICAS offers a personal and professional service tailored to your requirements and delivered by fully-trained, qualified and registered psychologists and counsellors.
ICAS's in-house telephone counselling provides immediate access to support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and face-to-face counselling sessions can be arranged near to you and at your convenience.
The service is entirely independent and confidential – we are not informed of members’ contact with ICAS – and accessing the service is easy. Simply contact your dento-legal case handler who will be able to provide you with ICAS's telephone number.
