The Primary Care Training Hub have created a Primary Care Supervision page to collate the available supervision sessions across North East and North Cumbria.

This page outlines the supervision sessions available to those in ARRS roles and the nursing workforce. This page is regularly updated in line with the availability of all supervisors therefore we recommend to regularly check this page.

 

Nursing Supervision

Our Clinical Supervision sessions are available free of charge to the Primary Care Nursing Workforce across the North East and North Cumbria, this includes Trainee Nurse Associates, Nurse Associates and Fellows.

The profiles below have been created to allow you to meet the supervisors available within our area and match your availability with them. Once you have decided which are the most suitable sessions for you, just send a request to the Primary Care Training Hub via the link to the right. 

Most sessions are delivered remotely via MS Teams (maximum of 8 places per session) and you will receive an invitation for 12 months’ worth of supervision. You can select any supervisor, including those outside of your locality.

You will receive an email confirming your sessions, and a recurring diary invite will follow. Then, just click into the diary invite each month to access your session.

ARRS Peer Support 

The Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) allows Primary Care Networks to recruit new roles to expand their care team, receiving 100% reimbursement of salary and on-cost. The aim of the scheme is to build and utilise the additional roles to solve the workforce shortage in general practice.

We are working with North East & Yorkshire Leadership Academy to provide additional support for ARRS roles through interactive Peer Support sessions.  

We are offering short, themed, online sessions to help build a community of support for people in ARRS roles across North East and North Cumbria. They are facilitator led, interactive spaces, for people to come together, share their experiences and be heard. The aim of the sessions is to reduce any feelings of professional isolation and to create greater levels of connection, collaboration and support  

Attendees will participate in four peer support sessions, three of which will be multi-disciplinary, and will be held monthly. The fourth session will bring professional groups together, to help build a greater community of shared professional support.  

Wellbeing will be a strand running throughout all the sessions and the key focus of the sessions is:   

 Starting well and keeping going 

 Finding my place 

 Understanding how change impacts on me 


 

ARRS Clinical Supervision Training

If you would like further information or are interested in attending this course, please email The Primary Care Training Hub: traininghub.nenc@hee.nhs.uk 

The Primary Care Training Hub are working with local stakeholders across North East and North Cumbria to commission training to support those who provide, or will be providing, supervision for staff recruited through Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme. Staff recruited through Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) need to be given access to appropriate clinical supervision.

This course is focused on supporting Primary Care Networks (PCN) by offering training and resources to develop practitioners and providing patient and practitioner safety through supervision. This course is delivered over 3x days and covers good supervision, coaching and mentoring skills and CPD and supervision.

ARRS Minimum Standards for Supervision

The Primary Care Training Hub Business Team have worked with Gateshead Place, clinicians within the ARRS roles, and other key stakeholders to establish a minimum standard of Clinical Supervision, with the aim of this being rolled out across Gateshead and then the wider ICP/ICS. These guidelines therefore outline how much supervision each ARRS role should receive, and which roles would be best suited to supervise other roles. These are guidelines only, and individuals should only supervise other roles if they feel comfortable and competent to do so.

ARRS Minimum Standards for Supervision Guidance Video : This video has been devised by The Primary Care Training Hub in collaboration with clinicians and stakeholders across North East and North Cumbria to explain the ARRS Minimum Standards for Supervision.
