RCN Wales Safe Staffing Toolkit

In order for nurses and healthcare support workers to continue to deliver safe and compassionate care, RCN members, representatives, activists and staff worked successfully together to lobby Welsh Government to achieve the introduction of the Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Act 2016, the first of its kind in Europe.  This toolkit will provide all RCN Wales Representatives with a resource to support activity in their workplace.
