The PHMP service was launched in September 2015. To date the service has supported a total of 245 practitioner patients across the medical, dental and pharmacy professions. The service promotes early engagement so that problems do not become more entrenched and complicated, however, some practitioners have presented only when in difficulty with their regulatory body. The PHMP has a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Medical and Dental Councils as well as the Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland which facilitates any necessary medical and therapeutic intervention to be offered without the need to involve the regulator. Because PHMP is a programme designed specifically for health professionals, we can focus solely on the necessary strategies which will support the practitioner in getting back to full health and getting back to safe working again.
