The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute welcomes Chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard and theatre maker Viv Gordon to share the stage for the Institute’s fourth annual public lecture GPs on the brink.
Helen Stokes-Lampard will draw upon her extensive experience as a medical academic and GP in a unique lecture while Viv Gordon will share readings from her new theatre work PreScribed (a Life Written for Me).
Prescribed (due to tour at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2017) tells a witty and emotive story built from University of Bristol research into improving support for the estimated 13,000 UK GPs living with mental ill health. The research project 'Improving access to support' was led by Ruth Riley and Johanna Spiers, previously at the University of Bristol, both of whom will join Helen Stokes-Lampard and Viv Gordon for a panel during the event.
This three minute video captures key elements of the performance, and the research that inspired it.
Join us to unveil and unpick the realities of life as a GP in the current NHS, and the implications for GPs' mental wellbeing.
Tickets are free and are available from St George's Bristol.
