Safe staffing levels

We are required to publish information about staffing levels on our wards in the interest of patient safety.

‚ÄčThe National Quality Board, sponsored by the Chief Nursing Officer in England, published a guide to support NHS service providers and commissioners in making the right decisions about nursing and care staffing.

From April 2014, all hospitals are required to publish information about staffing levels on wards, including the percentage of shifts meeting their agreed staffing levels.

This initiative is part of the NHS response to the Francis Report which called for greater openness and transparency in the health service.

Each month, we will publish information about our staffing levels and provide links to papers discussed in public at our Trust Board meetings.

You can view Information about our nursing levels on our wards in the key documents section of our website.
