In 2020, NHS England and NHS Improvement allocated funding to develop workplace supervisors with a focus on General Practice Nurses. With the identification of the emerging multi-professional teams and roles in Primary Care, the aim was to equip experienced nurses with the knowledge around implementing effective supervision and the skills to enhance and support the workforce to promote retention, governance, and wellbeing.
The Training Hubs initial aspiration is to establish at least one GPN workplace supervisor per Primary Care Network (PCN) in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin CCG. However, this is not limited, and we hope to encourage more GPN’s to be equipped with the skills to be clinical supervisors for their peers and help build resilience across the workforce.
