COVID-19 has brought unprecedented challenges to everyone. At this time, in this current context, it is imperative that all staff working in health and social care address their wellbeing.
This includes registered managers of care services who have worked tirelessly to support their team, protect people from COVID-19 and manage the distress of clients and people through lockdowns and beyond. It has been a physically and emotionally exhausting period, leading to registered managers and other staff leaving the sector. Without that safe space to reflect on working practice and access vital support, burnout is the inevitable result.
Regulation 18 of The Health and Social Care Act 2008, states that all staff, including registered managers, should receive supervision to support them to carry out their role and responsibilities. If the registered manager doesn’t receive effective supervision, there is a risk that the service will not meet the CQC expectations of being “Well-led’’.
Supervision can take many forms and every manager will have different needs and each service will have its own unique challenges. The purpose of supervision is to provide a safe and confidential space for individuals to reflect on and discuss their work and their personal and professional responses to their work.
