Dear Ealing Hospital NHS Trust,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I seek the following information about staff attendance for the A&E and Maternity units in each of the hospitals within your trust during three specified time periods:

31st March - 17th April
18th April - 21st April
3rd May - 5th May

Specifically, I am looking to receive data about attendance levels of doctors, nurses and consultants in both units during the three separate time periods. I would like to know the numbers of staff present in each role, both those who were physically in attendance and how many were on call. I am enquiring about the numbers of the following specific roles:

Doctors: Junior House Officer (or the equivalent), Senior House Officer (or the equivalent), Registrar and Consultants
Nurses: student nurses, nurses, student midwives and midwives.

Alongside this I am also seeking your official safe staffing
recommendations and guidelines for attendance levels of these staff roles in A&E and Maternity, specifying on call or physically in attendance.

I would prefer to receive this information electronically,
preferably as a data set, eg. in Excel.

If the decision is made to withhold some of this data using
exemptions in the Data Protection Act, please inform me of that fact and cite the exemptions used. If some parts of this request are easier to answer than others, I would ask that you release the available data as soon as possible.

If you need any clarification then please do not hesitate to
contact me. Under Section 16 it is your duty to provide advice and assistance and so I would expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in any way.

I look forward to hearing from you within the 20-working day
statutory time period.

Yours faithfully,

Chloe Williamson

Dear Chloe,
 
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request, reference FOI/14/064
 

* Please find as enclosed the staffing for the Emergency Department
(A&E). 

 
 

* You also asked about whether we had official safe staffing
recommendations and guidelines for attendance levels of these staff
roles.

  We do not currently have one for the Emergency Department.  The RCN
Emergency Care Association (ECA) and the Faculty of Emergency Nursing
(FEN) have devised the Baseline Emergency Staffing Tool (BEST).  They are
currently reviewing their findings which is due to be published in August
2014.  We plan to review their findings and decide whether we wish to
adopt this tool.  Currently staffing levels are regularly reviewed by the
Emergency Department leads
 
I take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and interest in
Ealing Hospital NHS Trust.
 
If you have any further questions then please do not hesitate to contact
me.
 
 
Kind regards
