Healthcare Staffing

The NHSGGC Healthcare Staffing team works to support services applying the Common Staffing Method, and is leading implementation of the Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Act 2019. This involves working closely with our colleagues from across the board, including those responsible for Excellence in Care.

We can give you advice, support and training on the following:

  • Workload and Workforce Planning Tools
  • Common Staffing Method
  • Data analytics

The legislation intends that staffing will be in place throughout NHS Scotland that:

  • Reflects patient and service needs and promotes a safe environment for service users and staff
  • Strengthens and enhances current arrangements and continuous improvements in workforce planning and employment practice arrangements
  • Enables consideration for service delivery models and service redesign
  • Provides assurance that safe and effective staffing is in place to ensure provision of high quality care
