Nursing and Midwifery Staffing Levels

Since April 2014 all hospitals have been required to publish information about the numbers of nursing and midwifery staff working on each ward, together with the percentage of shifts meeting 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 about staffing levels will be published monthly. Full details will also be reported to public meetings of our Board of Directors. We will be displaying information for patients and visitors in all of our wards that shows the planned and actual staffing available at the start of every shift.
