Ward rounds are essential to the care of patients in our hospitals - and a number one priority for the Government.
NHS staff are at their best, and delivering their best, when they are actually with patients - not with paperwork.
Having the right team at the right time on a ward round means better care and quicker treatment decisions. We are already working with nursing leaders, including the Nursing and Care Quality Forum and the Royal College of Nursing to free up nurses' time and make this a reality.
