Doctors with Disabilities

Here is a useful resource page for doctors living in the UK:

BMJ Careers have printed a Training & Working with Disabilities career focus information guide. This document has a collection of articles from a variety of sources. Email: careerfocus@bmjgroup.com for a copy.

Hope for Disabled Doctors - Help in Obtaining Professional Equality
Hope for Doctors was created by a doctor with a visual impairment. It was established to try to prevent others having to struggle for support, and to provide a sign-posting service direct to relevant services and advice. http://www.hope4medics.co.uk/homepage.php

British Medical Association
The BMA has a section on their website for health professionals with disabilities (Click Here) which includes a section on support, advice and self-help groups.

They have also produced the following document "Disability equality in the medical profession" which you can download as a pdf. Click here
