Will your London Workforce Board consider the recommendations of Timewise’s pilots which introduced a team-based approach to the roster, giving nurses greater control of their working patterns, and extend this to London?
I understand that NHS England and NHS Improvement has a ‘clinical productivity programme’ which focuses on supporting clinical staff to spend time with patients and service users rather than on non-clinical work. This includes the use of technology and rostering systems. They will consider any evidence which helps achieve more time to provide care. Please send the information to Jane Clegg, Director of Nursing & Deputy Regional Chief Nurse, NHS England and NHS Improvement London.
