NHS England publishes staffing data

The NHS take another step forward in its commitment to openness and transparency today as nurse, midwife and care staffing data down to ward level is published for the first time.

The information is available in one place on a new safety section on NHS choices alongside a range of other information including safety reporting, infection control, blood clots, pressure ulcers and patient and staff feedback.

Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer for England, has also posted a blog on how providing accessible and meaningful information about our local health services is establishing the NHS as a global leader in openness and transparency and helping to inform the public and drive improvements.
