In November 2013 the National Quality Board published "how to ensure the right people, with the right skills are in the right place, at the right time".

This guidance sets out the expectations of NHS Trust Boards to ensure levels of nurse and midwifery staffing are safe on wards. Part of this initiative is a requirement for all hospitals to publish information about staffing levels on wards.

At Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust we take the care of our patients very seriously and already have a number of mechanisms in place to ensure that our wards are safely staffed.

The following links outline recent staffing levels.

Strike Action

Our Trust will be impacted by Royal College of Nursing strike action on 15 and 20 December. We are working to ensure minimal disruption and will contact patients directly if we have to cancel appointments.
