This chapter outlines how a group of practitioners (lead professionals) facilitated the widespread implementation and development of clinical supervision within a NHS Community Trust. Drawing on the experiences of health visitors, general nurses and community psychiatric nurses, the authors describe the phases or stages of this implementation process. Furthermore, they describe their particular roles involved in the implementation and use case examples of the introduction of clinical supervision into each practice discipline. The chapter concludes with reflections on the implementation process and identifies some of the barriers to introducing clinical supervision.
