We want to work more closely with you to help resolve as many issues as possible locally, quickly and effectively.

This is part of our new approach to fitness to practise.

We know there’ll always be times when you want to talk things through.

For example, you might think a possible referral is ‘borderline’ and that a little more guidance would be helpful. Or you may just want us to confirm your own conclusions.

If so, please talk to one of our experienced Regulation Advisers Call us on 020 7462 8850 or email us.

Somebody in our team will ask you for:

  • your name, job title, place of work, phone number and email address
  • details about the issue and your reasons for seeking advice from us 
  • the name and PIN of the nurse, midwife or nursing associate.

Our Employer Link Service works with employers across health and social care in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. You can find your local Regulation Adviser on the table below:

We also offer inductions about fitness to practise, these are for senior members of your nursing and midwifery teams, such as Chief Nurses, or Directors or Heads of nursing and midwifery.

We also provide group learning sessions about fitness to practise and our other core regulatory functions, including the Code and our education standards.
