Guide on care contact time

The chief nursing officer for England has issued a guide for providers and commissioners identifying “care contact time”, as part of the drive to deliver safe and effective care.

The guide complements existing NQB guidance, NICE guidelines and NICE endorsed safe staffing toolkits.

The guide helps providers to make decisions about safe staffing care for their patients and service users and recommends that organisations review the contact time staff spend with their patients.
