NHS Improvement has produced draft guidance on safe staffing management for nursing associates. Employers are invited to submit feedback on the draft document by Wednesday 12 December 2018.
NHS Improvement intends to publish this guidance as an appendix to the set of safe staffing resources already available. This is to provide healthcare professionals and others with the tools to ensure they can safely and effectively integrate the nursing associate role into hospital and community care settings.
The resource has been drafted with input from senior nurses, clinicians, workforce colleagues and regulatory and government organisations including the Department of Health and Social Care and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
To view the staff staffing draft document and the consultation please visit the NHS Improvement website.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched a new Talking Toolkit to help employers prevent work related stress.
Developed to mark National Stress Awareness Day the toolkit encourages conversations between managers and employees about the causes of work related stress. Six conversation templates have been designed to support managers and employees to talk about issues which may be causing work related stress or which could have potential to become future causes if not managed properly.
Not only does the law require employers to tackle work related stress, taking action on stress has positive benefits for an organisation including, reducing sickness absence, boosting morale and helping to improve productivity.
To start a conversation download the Talking Toolkit.
You can find more information on supporting staff with stress in the Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Groups guidance on the prevention and management of stress in the workplace and our free emotional wellbeing toolkit.
