Doctor Wellbeing Zone

Visit the Doctor Wellbeing Zone at GP18!

As GPs you are at the forefront of taking care of the health and wellbeing of your patients and your communities. Sometimes, it’s easy to forget how important your own health and wellbeing is. At GP18 the Doctor Wellbeing zone has been created to provide a space where you can learn a few tips for looking after you.

Situated at the Recharge Lounge in the Exhibition Hall, come along during the session breaks and listen to a range of mini talks from  speakers who are there to help you prioritise your health and wellbeing including from the Black Dog Institute, Beyond Blue, headspace and more.
