Governance & housekeeping

Accountability

She engages in regular external review of work activity levels/caseload and personal wellbeing with annual appraisal.  A 360 degree feedback exercise will be performed every 3 years if requested by the Trust. Susie engages in documented, reflective CPD activity. She will be accountable to the Departmental Lead to which she is providing freelance services eg. Associate Director of Workforce, Clinical Director, Department Lead.
A Report of Wellbeing & Debrief activity
regarding numbers per session, general areas/subjects covered, and number of 1:1 sessions conducted (detailing any onward referral data) will be compiled on a six-monthly basis. Any other data collection – eg. outcome survey, burnout survey data collection wanted by the department will require discussion and prior agreement.
Susie engages in regular clinical supervision with BACP accredited, registered therapist & counsellor.
