Guide to Supervision in Primary Care

BLMK Primary Care Training Hub have developed a supportive guide to supervision in Primary Care. The guide can be downloaded here A Guide to Supervision in BLMK Primary Care v1.0 and will be updated as and when we receive more information.

Purpose This information has been summarised from a variety of sources (please see links in document for source material) and is intended as a guide only to help clinicians, practices and PCNs in Primary Care to understand the recommendations for Supervision.

Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that you have checked the most up to date guidance and to ensure that you are meeting the requirements documented in the DES or other profession specific requirements.

CQC The Care Quality Commission (Health & Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014) remind us that all staff ‘receive such appropriate support, training, professional development, supervision and appraisal as is necessary to enable them to carry out the duties they are employed to perform’.

The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) 2014 Regulations set out a provider’s responsibilities. The CQC’s guidance for providers on meeting the regulations explains that providers are responsible for the staff they ‘employ’. The meaning of ‘employed’ in the regulations is wider than staff directly employed on an employment contract: it means anyone who works for the provider, under its ongoing direction and control. Where we are aware of specific CQC requirements we have included these however please visit the CQC website for the latest / up-to-date information.
