P_CS_29 Clinical Supervision

This policy outlines the types and process of Clinical Supervision and requires that all professional and clinical support staff access and participate in appropriately agreed levels of Clinical Supervision.

This policy has been developed to provide a framework around which the practice of Clinical Supervision can be enhanced within LCHS.  The aim of the framework is that it will support a variety of models of clinical supervision that can be developed in accordance with local circumstances and staff development needs.

This policy includes the basic principles of Clinical Supervision but is not intended to prepare an individual to take on either the role of Supervisor or Supervisee. Training programmes to prepare and refresh clinical supervisors regarding their role, in addition to basic awareness training for supervisees are available to support the implementation of Clinical Supervision within the Trust
