Restorative Clinical Supervision in the North Central London ICS: A Review

The Foundation of Nursing Studies, in partnership with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, with the support of the Burdett Trust for Nursing, delivered a programme of Resilience-based Clinical Supervision across the NCL ICS.

Our findings suggest:

  • an increase in self-care and mental wellbeing
  • potential savings of £2,941 saved for every year’s average sickness avoided (per nurse) and £72,790 saved for every nurse retained

This small-scale initiative has punched above its weight and grabbed the attention of our chief nurses, through its use of practising compassion, kindness and warmth and avoiding self-blame. Reflective supervision on this model appears to offer nurses a structured and accessible model to create self-compassion.
