Staffing levels

NHS England and the Care Quality Commission have issued joint guidance to Trusts on the delivery of the ‘Hard Truths’ commitments associated with publishing staffing data regarding nursing, midwifery and care staff levels.

Research demonstrates that staffing levels are linked to the safety of care and that staff shortfalls increase the risks of patient harm and poor quality care.

Pennine Care publish staffing data in the following ways:

  • A Board report describing the staffing capacity and capability, following an establishment review, using evidence based tools where possible. To be presented to the Board every six months.
  • Information about the nurses, midwives and care staff deployed for each shift compared to what has been planned and this is to be displayed at ward level
  • A Board report containing details of planned and actual staffing on a shift-by-shift basis at ward level for the previous month. To be presented to the Board every month.
