The retreat was a great opportunity to step away from the front-line of my life and have the space to think” ED Consultant


Would you like some time and space to stop, breathe and relax?  Do you feel overwhelmed by the demands of medical life?  Has the pandemic caused you to need to reassess your life or just stop for a moment?  Take this opportunity to join our retreat that has already been shown to help other doctors.

We, Sandy Miles and Sam Powell, are two GPs with extensive experience of education and promoting doctor well-being. We know that medical practice, juggling organisational demands and patient needs, can leave you feeling that your needs are never met. We invite you to join us for 3 days for an opportunity to step away from your stethoscope. Here you can relax and have some fun, while reviewing your life and contemplating whether you need to make any changes, alongside like-minded colleagues.  We guarantee a peaceful environment, time to invest in yourself and excellent food.

The retreat incorporates opportunities for learning some simple techniques to help you unwind and the optional use of music, art, literature and gentle exercise to get you feeling in control again. There will also be plenty of time for rest and you will have the opportunity for a one to one session with either Sandy or Sam.

Places are limited to a small group so if you are keen to find out more, or would like to book or go on the mailing list, please contact us.

There is a bursary of £100 available for members of the Wessex RCGP.

This retreat can be considered a business expense (for personal development) and can count towards your CPD, being eligible for up to 10 hours of credit.  Certificates can be provided on request.

Any profit is given to the Royal Medical Benevolent Fund
