After a very busy post-take ward round we went as a team for a quick coffee in the hospital. It was amazing how much 20 minutes of socialising improved our weekend and made us feel like a team!

Make sure you have time off to recharge batteries and have an interest outside Medicine. I have a rule - 'no one ever thanks you for not taking holidays!' So take them.
- Dr Richard Hull

Be kind, be civil; saying please, thank you, sorry and listening will change the way your entire team acts and feels.
- Mr Simon Fleming

Some colleagues and I did the Santa Dash for the Beatson Charity! I was a good way to do a team activity and get everyone together as it’s changeover time. Our run team included FYs, CTs and STs in Surgery.
- Dr Sarika Nalagatla

Our Clinical Director praised trainees and thanked the group for their positive attitude and efforts to bring about change and improvement. It shifted the focus from lots of challenges. It didn't take much to say 'thank you and well done' and can make someone's day to hear it.
- Dr Kaitlin Mayne

This is a photo of ward B32 in Forth Valley Royal Hospital enjoying cake Friday. A weekly event where we take turns to bake for each other and make our day. I would recommend for any ward.
