TN-NT-Staffing Levels-Whos-Counting-updatedAug17-1In Association with the Nursing Times "Staffing Levels: Who's Counting?"

With news of growing staff shortages and cuts to training places, nursing feels increasingly understaffed and under pressure. How are nurses faring on the wards, and is anybody listening?

A survey of more than 500 nurses by Nursing Times and Allocate Software, echoes the sentiment in the Keogh review and has found that understaffing is already a serious concern at the frontline with 42% saying their ward was understaffed more than once a week and another 33% saying this happened every day.  Read the survey results and context

5Rs-of-NHS-mergers-and-On-Screen-2-1The five R’s for NHS mergers and integration. A reflection on best practice

NHS acute providers face an uncertain future, not least the financial constraints resulting direct from the ‘Nicholson Challenge’ - a call to the entire NHS to find £20 billion of efficiency savings by 2013/14. The pressure to find these savings is being felt most in the acute sector where there is speculation that around 20 hospital trusts are in financial meltdown.

The Allocate Executive Advisory Board (2012) has prepared this briefing as a short guide to highlight areas that should be taken into consideration by organisations considering structural reorganisation – whatever shape it comes in.

FrancisResourceTNThe Francis report, Keogh and Berwick reports all revisit common challenges around safe staffing, values, culture and standards of care, and they all raise the question of how accountable individuals, at all levels, assure themselves. We decided to produce this publication because we wanted to show there are many examples at ward, service and organisation level where people are using information effectively to increase the amount of time spent on patient care, ensuring the right skill mix is available on the ward and managing staff to meet predicted future demand.

CoBthumbnailDuring 2011/12, the reform of the NHS will move forward with a transitional re-alignment of commissioning as we move from the former Primary Care Trust-based (PCT) commissioning system to one where Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and the National Commissioning Board (NCB) take over this responsibility. As a trusted partner to the NHS, Allocate Software commissioned the Good Governance Institute (GGI) to carry out some research and develop thinking around the unique role of PCT clusters as they go forward into a pivotal year.

HealthAssure and HealthPerform is online software that supports boards in managing their the real-time governance, risk & compliance responsibilities. We are working with commissioning boards as they navigate their way through the current reforms, and have felt it important to share some of the lessons and examples from our clients and others at this complex but exciting time.

eJobPalnTNeJobPlan for consultants and SAS doctors

The most common method for writing job-plans is with paper or Excel templates. This approach is viewed as relatively inexpensive. However, in reality paper job planning can become an unnecessarily time-consuming paper-chase that is inconsistently applied across consultants. It can also result in a poorly controlled process, often driven by the needs of the consultants and not the trust. Web-based job planning overcomes all these difficulties and provides many more benefits.
