The College and the Trainee Advisory Committee is keen to ensure that during these challenging times trainees are well supported and have access to wellbeing services where they feel they might benefit from them.

Coaching and support sessions are now available to UK trainees, including pathology Higher Specialist Scientific trainees, at no charge. 

Due to potential capacity issues, the initial target group will be deployed trainees or recently deployed trainees, on a first come, first serve basis. If additional capacity becomes available, then the programme will be opened up more widely.

Sarah Gornall is an extremely experienced coach who is very keen to support pathology trainees who may find coaching helpful at the current time.

Sarah or one of her colleagues will provide you with the opportunity to discuss some of the current challenges and help you to manage these. The plan for the sessions (and the number of sessions undertaken, up to 10) will be decided by you.

In addition, there are a number of online wellbeing sites available on the Trainee COVID-19 hub.
