Safe Staffing

Delivering excellent care with compassion is one of our key priorities at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust.  Ensuring our wards and departments are safely staffed is one of the ways in which we will deliver this priority.

Safe nursing and midwifery staffing means that we have the right staff in the right place at the right time to provide the care that you, your family or your friends need.

From June 2014, all NHS Trusts are required to publish staffing levels as part of the NHS response to the Francis report, which called for greater openness and transparency in the NHS.  Our staffing levels are published on NHS Choices website from the 16th of each month.  A safe staffing dashboard is presented to our Trust Board each month and a detailed paper is presented to our Safety and Quality Committee each month.
