Hospitals in England told to publish staffing levels

Hospitals in England are to be made to publish monthly details of whether they have enough nurses on their wards.

From April, patients will be able to see the numbers on a new national safety website.

There will be no national minimum staffing standard, but it is likely to include recommended nurse to patient ratios for different types of ward.

It is part of the government's response to the public inquiry into the Stafford Hospital scandal.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt is due to address MPs on the issue later.

The move has been called for by nurse leaders and MPs in recent months.
