Abstract: During the second wave of Covid 19 pandemic the physicians are not only overburdened with extra work but also psychologically stressed out. Many doctors are experiencing high rates of stress, fatigue, emotional fragility and risk of burnout. Some are feeling less supported by their communities than during the first wave of the pandemic with over stress. We conducted a survey among the physicians of a district general hospital of the UK. Total 101 physicians from different specialties such as Medicine, Surgery and Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, ITU, A & E and so on took part in this survey. Our survey found that there is increased work load and immense pressure to obtain the training goals which could be the key concern behind the burnout of the physicians during this second wave of Covid 19 pandemic. To counter this, improved provision of PPE (personal protective equipment), continuous support from the hospital and the online training and its effectiveness are helping the doctors to cope in this unprecedented time.
