All practising nurses and midwives in the UK are registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). They regulate nurses and midwives in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We exist to protect the public.
This is done by setting standards of education, training, conduct and performance so that nurses and midwives can deliver high-quality healthcare throughout their careers.They make sure that nurses and midwives keep their skills and knowledge up to date and uphold the professional standards. Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) also have clear and transparent processes to investigate and take action against nurses and midwives who fall short of our standards.
Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) have produced a new leaflet for patients, carers and the public called Raising concerns about a nurse or midwife. It explains our role and how patients, carers and the public can raise a concern about a nurse or midwife. They would like to share this leaflet as widely as possible.
