Safe Staffing Levels

From April 2014 it became a national requirement for all hospitals to publish information about staffing levels on all inpatient wards.

At Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust we take the care of our service users very seriously. The Trust endeavours to create an organisation which is accountable to the wider public. Each month we will publish information about our staffing levels and provide reports discussed at our Trust Board meetings.

Each inpatient ward at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust has display boards, which show the planned and actual number of nursing and care staff for day and night shifts. These boards are visible for service users, carers and visitors and an example is shown here.
