Let’s get honest about ourselves ….

Posted by Geraint Martin on 12 February 2015 |

What does a good day at work look like for you? What do we need to do to increase those experiences? What’s a bad day? How do we decrease those experiences? These are the kinds of questions I’ll be asking you over the coming months as part of our values refresh. I like to think about this as coming clean and being honest with ourselves about what makes our system a great place to work and when it isn’t as good, why? It’s also important that we stretch our conversations to include our colleagues who work in primary and community-based organisations – they are part of our patient’s experience of healthcare.

Despite uncertainties and assuming I’m alive and well, the next five years could be the best of my life!

While I am looking forward to spending the holidays with family and friends, I must say I’m mostly looking forward to having time out to myself to rest, refresh and read the growing pile of books I’ve been keen to get to. We should rename this season as the season to “RE”! REfresh, REnew, REinvent, REvise, REflect, RE-energise, REbalance, REassess….. get the picture? However you choose to celebrate and take time out, I hope you enjoy the break. When you come back next year I’ll be asking for your help on a few important pieces of work.
