Council meetings

Agendas and when our meetings take place

The Council is the governing body of the NMC. It sets our strategic direction and the budget, monitors performance and holds the Executive to account for delivery.

The Council sets the standards which nurses, midwives and nursing associates must meet to be registered, including for education and training, the Code and revalidation.

Council meetings can cover issues ranging from our regulatory role to scrutiny of our performance and finances and may include matters that only the Council can decide, as well as issues for discussion or information.

Council meetings generally take place at our offices in London. Meetings are open to the public and anyone is welcome to attend.

If you would like to attend a Council meeting, please see details and booking information.
