Safe Staffing Levels

Since the publication of the Francis Report, in response to the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry, a commitment to publish nurse staffing levels for all NHS organisations has been implemented.

NCHC are committed to ensuring that levels of nursing staff, which include registered nurses and health care support workers, are appropriate for the acuity and dependency needs of patients within our inpatient units, in order to provide safe and effective care.

We are contracted to publish this information on a monthly basis via NHS Choices/Unify and our external website. The Board receive this information on a monthly basis through our Quality and Risk Reports. 

Staffing in our inpatient units

Each inpatient unit displays a ‘staffing status’ board which shows the planned and actual numbers of staff on shift each day. These boards are positioned where they can be clearly seen by patients, visitors and staff. They show who is in charge of the shift that day and when the board was last updated.
