Safe staffing levels

All hospitals are 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 which called for greater openness and transparency in the health service.

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

We are also displaying a poster for patients and visitors in all of our wards that shows the planned and actual staffing available at the start of every shift. 

For more information about safe staffing levels in hospitals, see NHS England.
