NHS Choices staffing fill rates

Following the publication of the Francis Report into the events at Mid-Staffordshire, all NHS Providers are required to publish staffing levels for inpatient areas.

The information all Trusts are required to report compares the actual number of staff on the ward throughout the 24 hour period against the agreed numbers of staff for the area.

As a mental health provider, at the Trust we acknowledge that the number of staff required to deliver safe effective care can vary on a day-to-day basis.

To make sure this information is captured accurately, we also report to our Trust Board on a monthly basis the number of staff that are on duty at any time, compared to the number of staff that were actually needed on a shift to deliver high quality care.

In doing so, we exceed the national reporting guidelines which only require us to report against each ward's "agreed budgeted establishment".​
