Professor Haslam said he had been invited to a health check by his own GP who recognised that doctors were an at-risk group when it came to looking after their own health. As a result he invited all the doctors registered at his practice for a health check, which he said was a 'really worthwhile exercise'.
The NICE chair, speaking at the RCGP annual conference in Harrogate, set out how GPs can be the sort of doctors they would want for themselves.
He said: 'It's worth asking what sort of doctor are you? What sort of doctor do you want to be? And if those two answers aren't the same, what are you going to do about it?'
