Posted on behalf of Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust:

At the bottom of this post you will find details of a restorative supervision and wellbeing programme for all Cancer and Diagnostics staff working within Staffordshire and Stoke-in-Trent. We are offering this innovative supervision and wellbeing program to Cancer and Diagnostic teams, across health and social care, to be delivered by ‘Talent for Care’ via MS Teams, with further support offered via WhatsApp.

The programme is designed for time-constrained, under-pressure colleagues, from any level of experience. The purpose of the programme is to support individual wellbeing, at the same time as offering a learning and development opportunity for professionals at all levels, in their health and care roles. All participants will be invited to engage in this supervision and wellbeing journey with colleagues, as well as on an individual level.

The programme will be delivered jointly with colleagues in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin ICS in order to maximise the opportunities for peer support.  There will be 6 cohorts of 12-20 participants from differing organisations in both systems; details of the dates/timings of each cohort can be found within the attached.

Programme leaders will deliver 5 x 1.5 hour on-line sessions over a period of 12-14 weeks and individuals will also receive a one-to-one enrolment session via a 30-minute on-boarding conversation, with one of the supervisors from Talent for Care.  The aim of spreading the programme of this length of time, is to minimise the impact on work schedules and rotas for all participants, as well as allow delegates to develop a wider peer network.

The programme is entirely confidential and offers a safe space, for colleagues to open-up, listen, contribute and enjoy, restoring their own health, strength and wellbeing, as well as that of their peers.  All that is required to attend the program is to have access to a device with a camera and microphone, to be able to create a quiet, private space to engage in the program sessions and be able to access MS Teams.  Should interested applicants have any access requirements, this can be discussed prior to commencing the programme.

Any interested staff will need to submit an expression of interest via the MS Office Form (link at the bottom of the programme flyer) as soon as possible.
