Telephone peer supervision and surviving as an isolated consultant

  • Rebecca Mason (a1) and Helen Hayes (a2)
Extract

Mentoring for newly appointed consultants in all specialties is recognised and established as offering important and essential support in the early years after appointment to a consultant post (Connor et al, 2000; Roberts et al, 2002; Waters, 2002; Dosani, 2006). In some regions this is now formalised and is in line with recommendations of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (Dean, 2002, 2003).
