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.
