Dedicated service available 7 days a week


The Doctors' Health Advisory Service (NSW) aims to ensure that every doctor, dentist, veterinarian or student in these professions has ready access to health care.

We offer a telephone call-back help line, providing independent and confidential advice for practitioners and students, and for colleagues and family members in NSW and the ACT.

We are here to help you find the support you need – whether it be referrals to specialist practitioners, online resources or other services.

We handle calls relating to stress and mental illness, drug and alcohol problems and relationship and other personal issues. No problem is too trivial or too serious.

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Kathryn Hutt as the Medical Director of DHAS NSW & ACT.   Kathryn is a general practitioner who has also previously worked in medical administration in hospitals and for the NSW Medical Council.   Kathryn brings to DHAS extensive experience in working with impaired doctors, medical workforce policy as well as broad experience as a GP in rural and remote NSW and urban Sydney practice.

The DHAS acknowledges the support of the Medical Board of Australia. 

The Medical Board of Australia has partnered with the Australian Medical Association to establish an independent national program called “Doctors Health Services”, now known as DRS4DRS

DRS4DRS promotes the health and wellbeing of doctors and medical students across Australia and can be accessed here, or you can access Dr4Drs at: 1300 374 377 (1300 Dr4Drs).

 DRS4DRS is also making available a confidential telehealth service specifically for doctors and medical students who are struggling with their mental health. Full details here.
