Safer staffing

nurse and patient

Our nursing staff and clinical teams treat those in their care with compassion and respect, in patients' homes, wards and clinics across the Trust.

The greater part of Birmingham Community Healthcare's services are delivered in people's homes or in clinical outpatient settings. But we also operate a number of inpatient services across the city.

From April 2014, all hospitals are required to publish information about the number of nursing and midwifery staff working on each ward, together with the percentage of shifts meeting safe staffing guidelines.

NHS England and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) have issued joint guidance on the ‘Hard Truths’ commitments regarding nursing, midwifery and care staff capacity and capability.

The ‘Hard Truths’ commitments represent the Government’s response to the report written by Robert Francis QC about the poor care identified at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust.
