Strategic Review of the Nursing and Midwifery Council [UK] – 3 July 2012

“Nursing and Midwifery Council has problems ‘at every level’ and is at risk of losing public confidence

The Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence review team was called in by Anne Milton, Minister for Public Health, in January to see why the NMC was failing to improve, particularly in its handling of cases about nurses’ and midwives’ fitness to practise. The report, published on 3 July, highlighted problems ‘at every level’.

The NMC’s long standing problems include confusion about its regulatory purpose, weak governance, poor planning, unreliable management information, and inadequate information technology. The NMC is currently recruiting a Chair and Chief Executive. This report makes 15 recommendations for changes in leadership, culture, finance and operational management. It calls for the new leaders to ‘lead by example’ to change the culture of the organisation and rebuild the confidence of its staff, the public, nurses, and midwives.”
