All hospitals are now required to publish information about the number of nursing and midwifery staff working on each ward, together with the percentage of shifts meeting safe staffing guidelines.
This is part of the NHS response to the Francis Report (external link, opens in new window), which called for greater openness and transparency in the health service.
An update review on staffing levels is presented every six months to the Board of Directors at their public meetings. The latest report was produced for the Board of Directors Meeting in May 2016 and can be downloaded here - Report on Nursing & Midwifery Safe Staffing (PDF document, link opens in new window).
Monthly overviews of staffing levels for each Ward for the last three months are available below.
If you have any questions about this information, please contact Alison Lynch, Director of Nursing & Quality, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
