A guide to help standardise staffing decisions for mental health services in community and inpatient settings. This resource is designed to help commissioners and providers of NHS commissioned services, create, review and sustain safe and effective specialist health services for people with mental health needs of all ages. The resource draws on evidence from a commissioned rapid review of literature and professional review of practice. It aims to provide principles and an assurance framework to help standardise approaches to making decisions about staffing in a multidisciplinary mental health setting, within organisations and across the system supporting the patient experience and outcomes.
