Safe staffing levels

We are required by NHS England to publish our inpatient nursing fill rates by ward area, showing our actual and planned staff fill rates.

This is in response to the Francis Report, where a commitment was made that all NHS organisations with inpatient areas would publish full staffing data (by month, by ward area) from May 2014, and then on an ongoing monthly basis. The intention is to show how trusts across the NHS ensure the safety of their staffing levels and skill mix. Returns for February and March for 2020 are missing as the requirement to report was temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
