Freedom of Information
Freedom of information requests
In response to the government’s advice, our Enquiries and Complaints team is currently working from home.
There may be a delay in responding to your complaint or information request during this time. We are sorry for this and will keep you fully updated about revised timeframes for our responses.
The best way to contact us during this period is by email at FOI&DPArequest@nmc-uk.org. We will be happy to arrange a phone call with you if this is required.
Thank you for your patience.
Before you start
In many cases, the information you are looking for will already be available publicly on our website and there will be no need for you to make a formal request under the Freedom of Information Act.
You should check our publication scheme to see how to access this information and whether there’s a cost to do so.
We've also adopted the Health Regulators Definition Document which can be viewed on the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) website.
Submit a request
If you've checked our publication scheme and the information you require is not available on our website, please complete the online FOI request form.
We will provide information unless:
- we do not hold the information
- the information is exempt under one of the FOI exemptions or Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) exceptions, or its release is prohibited under another statute
- the information is archived, out of date or otherwise inaccessible
- it would be impractical or resource-intensive to prepare the material for routine release.
Information Commissioner's Office
The Information Commissioner's Office has delivered three decision notices in relation to freedom of information requests for information relating to fitness to practise cases where the outcome was that the Investigating Committee closed the case with a 'no case to answer' decision..
