Safe staffing

All hospitals are required to publish information about the number of nursing and midwifery staff working on each ward.

This open and transparent approach is part of the NHS response to the Francis enquiry and is to provide assurance that we have the right number of staff to deliver high quality, safe and effective care.

All inpatient areas have introduced staffing boards to publicly display planned versus actual staff on duty on a daily basis. An escalation plan has been implemented to ensure staff have a clear process to follow if actual numbers are not in line with those planned.

Information about staffing levels is published monthly. Full details are also reported to public meetings of our Board of Directors.
