Timetable a mid-session coffee break
What we did
Every morning the doctors share a mid-surgery 30-minute (when we’re on time) break for coffee at 10am
We find it helpful to bounce ideas off one another, whether clinical, organisational or for any intangible ‘feeling’ that would not merit a deliberate interruption. It enhances the feeling of partnership and also serves as a catch-up if we are running late.
From Dr Brian Partridge, Buckinghamshire
