Quotes from the CSL website
“Civil work environments matter because they reduce errors, reduce stress and foster excellence.”
“Almost all excellence in healthcare is dependent on teams and teams work best when all members feel safe and have a voice. Civility between team members creates that sense of safety and is a key ingredient of all teams. Incivility robs teams of their potential.”

It is important to find time to plan and prepare for your development meetings.

Developing A Career Plan
Having a career plan helps us to clarify our short and long term learning objectives, how we will achieve these and the time we need to do this. A career plan is essentially a route map of development activities designed to take us to where we would like to be.
Regular review of our plan lets us see the progress we are making, build and adapt our development towards different roles or opportunities and continue the journey to our ideal job.
- Guidance on creating a career plan is provided here.
- You can now access and complete the Project Lift Self Assessment Readiness Questionnaire via Turas. This will give you a comprehensive report of your strengths and areas for development to inform your career plan
- A range of information and tools on career planning can be accessed at www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/career-planning.
