WOODLAND RESILIENCE IMMERSION for GP’s
Nature-based ways to resource yourself and your practice
Hazel Hill Wood, near Salisbury: June 10-11, 2019
The impact on GP’s of prolonged overload, and the stress of facing ever-rising demands with shrinking resources, needs creative responses. This Woodland Resilience Immersion offers a different way to gain new insights and skills, to raise your resilience and nourish your wellbeing.
These programmes have been jointly developed by Hazel Hill Trust and Westminster Centre for Resilience. Following two very successful pilot programmes with hospital doctors, they are now offering a pilot group tailored to GP’s.
Thepartner organisations involved can draw on a wide range of facilitators: Immersionshave at least two facilitators, one a medical professional, one from Hazel Hill, both with extensive experience of resilience programmes for the health sector.
