This is to assist with the emotional impact of their work and guide them on how to effectively deal with patient risk factors.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  NHSE / I have also stated that all primary care networks (PCNs) should ensure their HWBCs have access to four-day health coaching training, including access to a health coaching supervisor who can directly supervise the HWBCs.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  It should be noted that health coaching supervision is different from clinical and caseload supervision and one-to-one line management.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  “What’s different is probably the perception of what is possible and permissible. We feel in control rather than being an island under attack retreating from the relentless onslaught of demand on one side and reduction in provision on the other.”
