This guide will help regulated providers improve their safe staffing practice. This is about having enough staff, who have the right values and skills, to deliver high quality care and support. Without it, services struggle to provide people with the safe and effective care they need and deserve.

The guide explains what the CQC will inspect around safe staffing and help you decide and maintain safe staffing levels, embed safe recruitment practices and ensure your staff are safe and competent.
