The Francis report recommended that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence draw up minimum safe staffing levels that would be policed by the Care Quality Commission. It stated that NICE should develop

“evidence-based tools for establishing” the staffing needs of each service in the NHS which is likely to be required

“as a minimum in terms of staff numbers and skill mix.”

Will the Minister tell us when the Government will act on this and all the recommendations in the report?
