What is the need for supervision?

  • Health Coaches are a non-clinical ARRS role in primary care, providing expertise in behaviour change and support to patients who have (or are at risk of) long term conditions.
  • Health coaches need 3 distinct, different types of supervision and support, as described in the Workforce Development Framework for HWbC[1].
  • Good supervision arrangements for health and wellbeing coaches are crucial to ensure they practice safely and effectively. There are three types of supervision that health and wellbeing coaches should receive:
  • 1 line management support and supervision – day-to-day practical management, HR functions, appraisal etc.
  • 2 supervision from a clinician – for clinical queries arising from interactions with patients and safeguarding support etc.
  • 3 Health coaching supervision – specific support and development of coaching skills and techniques and reflective practice and continuing professional development.
  • Recommended frequency: Individual health coaching supervision – one to two hours per month.
  • Group health coaching supervision also recommended as a supplementary development opportunity.
  • Provided by person experienced in health coaching (minimum tier 3 practitioner)
  • Focus on developing the skills, competencies and confidence of the health and wellbeing coach in health coaching approaches and practice, and working through dynamics and issues with individual clients.
  • Support ongoing personal and professional development
  • Where organisations commission health and wellbeing coaches via a third party arrangement, for example, through a voluntary sector or other partner, supervision arrangements should be agreed as part of the commissioning arrangement to ensure that appropriate supervision is in place.
  • Health and wellbeing coaches should be able to discuss patient related concerns and be supported to follow appropriate safeguarding procedures (for example, abuse, domestic violence and support with mental health) with a senior member of staff. Regardless of the setting the health and wellbeing coaches works in, it should be clear who they need to speak to in the first instance about any patient-related concerns.

“These sessions are so beneficial. I am flitting between 7 practices, with little contact with practice staff and no other coaches in the PCN I work with, so I am quite isolated. These sessions give us time to reflect, think, be together with our peers, and have that support to develop that we don’t get anywhere else”. – Health coach supervisee, August 2023
