Safe staffing levels

From April 2014 all NHS services are required to publish information about the number of nursing 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.

For more information about staffing levels on our wards, please contact Jennie Walsh at

If you have any concerns about staffing levels on any of our wards and wish to speak to someone, you can contact the service manager or alternatively contact PALS on (01472) 583040
