Committees of Council

The five committees of Council

The Council takes strategic decisions on issues affecting the NMC, nurses, midwives, nursing associates and public protection. Committees explore these issues in greater depth and report back to Council on discussions. This provides a further level of assurance to Council when making strategic decisions.

Meetings of committees are not open to the public.

Until 31 March 2017, there was a fourth committee of the Council; the Midwifery Committee. Historical information about the Midwifery Committee can be found here:
