Safe, sustainable and productive staffing in mental health services

NHS Improvement, March 2017

NHS Improvement are developing this resource to help commissioners and providers of NHS-commissioned services create, review and sustain, safe and effective specialist mental health services. They are asking for feedback on this before publishing a final, revised version later this year.

The document aims to make the link between the decisions on staffing that boards and clinical teams take and the needs of people who use mental health services. It is practical and pulls together existing guidance and approaches used to help make staffing decisions. We want to provide a resource that will make a sustainable difference to the quality of care that is delivered and experienced.

The deadline for feedback is 28th April 2017.
