Safe staffing levels

Since April 2014 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 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 on this webpage and displayed in our wards. Full details will also be reported to public meetings of our Board of Directors.

For the benefit of our patients and visitors we have also installed noticeboards on every ward which show planned and actual staffing levels on a shift by shift basis.

Got a question about staffing levels?
