Clinical Supervision Subject Expert Group

Attempts to secure regular clinical supervision for nurses and midwives are longstanding. Despite this, a structure for sustained access to high-quality supervision is still far from a reality.

The Florence Nightingale Foundation (FNF) Academy Membership highlighted this as a policy priority for FNF to take forward. As a result, FNF’s first Clinical Supervision Subject Expert Group (CS-SEG) was established comprising of National leaders in the field and representing all four countries of the UK.

The activity commenced with an RCN Students webinar in summer 2020, and following that CS-SEG was active in working with members to take this agenda forward. The focus of the CS-SEG was to:

Recognising that ‘one size does not fit all’, the CS-SEG agreed that their common purpose was not to redefine clinical supervision nor advocate for a preferred model. They value the numerous initiatives occurring across the UK but defined their role as advocating for an underpinning structure, grounded in policy, which will enable nurses to consistently access a high-quality standard of clinical supervision in a sustained manner.
