Let’s have a cup of tea principle

GRADUATE EDUCATION 

A “gentleman’s approach” in the UK to addressing potential issues in post-graduate education and junior doctor training schemes. The principle avoids elaborate and expensive accounting exercises, by simply sitting down and ironing out problems over a cup of tea. 

Background For years, “knock for knock” (you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours) was the guiding principle that acknowledged “mutual uncosted assistance” between universities and the teaching hospitals. It is therefore hardly surprising that in recent years there has been pressure to quantify the costs involved more precisely.
