We will notify a nurse or midwife of any hearing in relation to their fitness to practise and give them the opportunity to attend. Our Rules specify how many days’ notice we should give and the information the notice should contain.1 The amount of notice we give depends on the type of hearing. We count the number of days’ notice provided to the nurse or midwife from the day after the notice is sent.2

We will also notify a nurse or midwife of certain meetings and give them the opportunity to send in a written response.
