Formatted Abstract/Summary
Aims & rationale/Objectives :
  Evidence shows that doctors have difficulty accessing independent health care for cultural, psychological and personal reasons. The objective of this paper is to categorise these barriers adding new qualitative data that enhances our understanding of this data within a sociological context.

Implications: 
Doctors' health is currently recognised as an important area of research with implications for the workforce. This study on the barriers encourages a new approach to this issue and provides a solid foundation for promoting the role of primary care health practitioners working together effectively to reduce these barriers. There are implications for medical training programs, medico-legal issues and regulation of the medical workforce. It will potentially change the focus of future research.
