Few environments demand a higher level of emotional competences than forensic care settings, and the importance of clinical supervision to mitigate against the risks of such an environment cannot be underestimated. This paper explores the efficacy of clinical supervision provided to nursing staff within a high secure hospital using the Manchester Clinical Supervision Scale. Results indicated that the nursing workforce were overall very satisfied with their clinical supervision, specifically clinical team leaders are most likely to be very satisfied. Results also showed the significance of time: clinical supervision is more effective when it lasts between 30–60 minutes, but correspondingly, time is one of the key barriers to accessing clinical supervision.
