  1. I am a doctor, a general practitioner. I obviously had stressors at work but not nearly as severe as Mr Levi’s are. Despite the stress I really loved my job. I have resistant depression and was diagnosed as having bipolar 2 a few years ago and as a result of its severity I had to stop work. I really miss being a GP and although I am approaching the retirement age of 65 I had intended working past that age if I was able. I was deeply saddened by Dr Andrew Bryant’s suicide and all those many, many others, some of which we hear about and so many others that we don’t. It is very difficult for me to talk about this on a public forum but mental illness can affect anyone and hopefully by talking about it more people with mental health problems will seek help.

      1. HI Eric,
        I was very happy to come across your post. My daughter is a ‘doctor in training’, having done 4 years at Melbourne University she has transferred to UQ & is now at the new Sunshine Hospital. I have an online summit launching next Monday, REBOUND WITH RESILIENCE … Discover the Art of Bouncing Back From Any Setback with Grit & Grace. I would like to interview at some stage in the future. ( I have interviewed a Dr from Seattle who has recently experienced the suicide death of a friend). I think you would have a lot of valuable insight to offer. Sadly it is too late for this summit, but there will be more !!

  2. Extremely well written article Eric. Thankyou so much for your candour. Your article resonates with many a healthcare worker! I am a theatre nurse of 25 yrs and I fully relate to what you say about the hospital admin! It drives me to despair!! So I can only imagine the pressure that you doctors face! I believe that we need a revolution in the hospitals, where admin take a back seat and those who know and care for pts do so and are supported rather than hindered by admin! It is extremely insulting when admin make decisions that should be medical & or nursing driven! I’m so disillusioned with the system that I have gone back to study and try another profession.

  3. Time to work in private practice I think!
    You have given back enough now .
    This is martyrdom and it’s time the hospital recruiters got themselves a new slave .
    A few registrars would be a help .
    A day off here and there to be with a new born child is totally due to you . I am sure that any one who needs life saving care will be cared for by someone else .
    You are not valuing yourself enough and you need to be more boundaried.
