Bogus phone calls
We’ve had reports of callers posing as NMC staff calling nurses and midwives and asking for personal details such as a mobile number, sometimes mentioning revalidation.
These calls are not from the NMC. If we call you, we will always leave a name and contact details. Do not give out personal information unless you are sure that the email or phone call is genuine.
If you think you have been targeted, please contact us or tell the local police.
Contact our Media Team if you are a journalist with a query.
Discussing your registration with a third party
If you would like a third party (such as a relative or nursing agency/company) to contact us on your behalf about your registration as a nurse or midwife, we must have written confirmation from you.
If we have not received a permission letter, we will not be able to provide any information about your registration to the third party. Please note that the third party request will take five working days to appear on the applicant’s file. We will be unable to discuss any details until this process is complete.
Employers are already able to access this information via the caller code and password.
