Ashling Lillis is a now consultant in acute medicine at Whittington Health NHS Trust, but she was almost a consultant in intensive care medicine - but a mental health crisis just 6 months before she qualified made her reassess her career, and choose a different path. In this podcast, Ash talks to Abi and Cat about the difficulty many doctors have when discussing their mental health - and how speaking out about her own experiences, has encouraged others to talk to her privately - and opened her eyes to the extent of the problem in the NHS.
