Tea Trolley Rounds

What is it?

A nice informal way of having a cuppa and a chat about what it’s like to work at CHFT.

How will this look?

Every area of CHFT will be visited by some friendly faces with a tea trolley, some biscuits and a few questions. Visits won’t be announced and no one needs to be on their best behaviour. The questions are things like ‘what makes you feel valued around here?’ and ‘how do you want your leaders and managers to behave?’ Anyone can volunteer to push the tea trolley. So far, we’ve had nurses, Governors, members of the board of directors, people who work in administration, in fact, everyone! If you fancy it get in touch and we’ll book you on. Email

Who is this for?

The tea trolley rounds are for everyone! There have already been visits to wards and departments right across the Trust, and loads of cups of tea drunk – it’s where all this lovely stuff in The Cupboard has come from! The tea trolley rounds will continue to be a really important way that we collect feedback and we’ll update the contents of the cupboard on the back of them as we go along.

When will this be available?


They’ve already started. The first tea trolley round was in June 2018. We’ll carry on until we’ve got round every area, and then we’ll start again!
