What affects our wellbeing? How does our wellbeing impact our health? How can we best promote wellbeing in our patients & how as doctors can we look after our own & each other’s wellbeing?

While both are General Practitioner’s Dr Jennifer Sudder is the Clinical director of a thriving private practice in Lifestyle medicine & Dr Emma Windle arranged the hugely successful first Health & Wellbeing festival in Aberdeen.
