North Essex Personality Disorder (PD) Strategy

 A statement of ambition has been developed by our commissioners as a forerunner to a north Essex personality disorder (PD) strategy which will set out the vision and approach to mental health commissioning for PD services across north Essex up to 2017. Click here to view details.



The National Quality Board, supported by Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer in England, has recently published new guidance for providers and commissioners about safe staffing. This guidance describes how a health care provider organisation should report on staffing levels on a monthly basis and at its public Board meetings and to make the right decisions about nursing, midwifery and care staffing capacity and capability.

We have published the relevant staffing reports on these pages click here and will continue to do so each month. Each of these reports provides numbers on a per ward basis for the Trust and our considered judgment whether or not they meet the safe staffing levels we aspire to have in place at all times. 

The first report under these new requirements on ward staffing levels was considered by the NEP Board on 26 May 2014. To read the Safe Staffing Report click here and to look at the Ward Staffing levels please click here.
