One of our practice managers response to staff being stressed and morale being low was an inspirational tough.
It's the same staff battling through but good will only goes so far and morale has crashed. I know this is the same in other areas.
I don't mind admitting I'm close to burn out. I have around 30 patient appointments a day, a mix of over the phone and face to face, these days none are nice wee simple things due to other pressures on services. Add in dealing with referrals, docman results etc its bloody hard going, especially the doc man results as that leads to more prescriptions, paperwork etc and due to more staff being off you're trying to squeeze in more. Factor in a few mental healtg patients and its draining.
I'm struggling to see how things improve over the coming months and last week was the first time in a long time where I have felt I can't do this anymore and I'm fairly resilient.
