1. What is Burnout?

There is no specific agreed definition so this can make it difficult to diagnose. It isn’t about having the occasional bad day, or even bad week, at work but instead usually involves a sustained negative change physically, emotionally, behaviourally.

1. The rota is tough. I know you’re knackered, you’ve probably not seen your friends and family for ages and the rota is playing havoc with your sleep. Please, tell me if you’re struggling. I would rather know, and support you, rather than you burning out. It’s ok not to be ok
2. Don’t lose your humanity
We’re a battle hardened lot, we’re quirky and sometimes cynical. I’m sorry for that. Empathy is something to be treasured, hold onto it. Being kind is never a weakness.

3. Take a break
Thank you, for trying to help me when you’ve been working 8 hours without a break, and you don’t feel able to leave me and the shop floor with a 5 hour wait. You’re amazing. But please, take a break. You’ll be safer, and more productive for it.
