Decision makers should be aware that in some cases a referral will raise concerns about a nurse or midwife’s health and its potential impact on their ability to practise safely. There may be some evidence that the nurse or midwife’s work is adversely affecting their health. Such evidence may suggest that an interim order is in the interests of the individual to protect their health.
