Coffee & a gas


It can be hard to get together with colleagues for a good ‘get-it-off-your-chest’ type chat when work is always so busy. But friendly, open conversations are an important way to help us share worries and reduce stress.

We encouraged #CoffeeAndAGas sessions to mark International Stress Day in 2017. We had a fantastic response with many of you taking the time to catch up and share your own experiences and concerns.

Keep up the habit and create your own, regular #CoffeeAndAGas at your Trust. It's good to talk.

Plan your next Coffee and a Gas

If this is an induction week at your hospital, why not plan a Coffee and a Gas session for getting to know new colleagues?
