Safe Staffing

Cure the NHS welcomed the publication of the A&E guideline and particularly the fact that the committee clearly supported the idea of minimum nurse to patient ratios as being the best route to protect patients and provide high standards of care. We would urge all NHS trusts to consider aNd act on this guideline in the interests of their patients.
As a group we remain shocked and concerned that the Government and NHS England suspended NICE’s work on safe nurse staffing, a key recommendation of the Francis report that we fought so hard for.
Safe staffing and nurse to patient ratios are essential to ensure patients do not suffer as our relatives did at Mid Staffordshire.
