From April 2014 it became a national requirement for all hospitals to publish information about staffing levels on wards, including the percentage of shifts meeting their agreed staffing levels.

Each month, we will publish information about our staffing levels and provide links to papers discussed in public at our Trust Board meetings.

New learning disability service opened in Norfolk

The courtyard at Astley Court

A centre which will provide assessment and treatment for people with learning disabilities in Norfolk was officially opened today (Friday 21 June).

Astley Court, based at Little Plumstead Hospital and run by HPFT, was formally opened by the Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Revd Graham James.

Visitors also had the chance to look around the new £5.3m state-of-the-art unit, which will offer modern, comfortable surroundings for 12 patients at a time.

The bright and airy en-suite bedrooms allow patients privacy and dignity during their stay. They will stay at the unit for three to four months for assessment before returning to the community, supported by a tailored package of care delivered either in their homes, in supported living environments or in residential care.
