Nursing staffing level
We routinely publish information about the number of nursing and midwifery staff working on each ward and the percentage of shifts that meet safe staffing guidelines. This initiative is part of the NHS response to the Francis Report which called for greater openness and transparency in the health service.
Information is published monthly and included in the papers we discuss at our Trust Board meetings.
In addition we display posters for patients and visitors in all of our wards that show the planned and actual staffing available at the start of every shift.
For more information about our staffing levels please contact Rowan Procter, executive chief nurse:
