Investigations 6 Guides

We protect the public by investigating serious concerns about a nurse, midwife or nursing associate's fitness to practise. These are concerns which could place patients at risk, or undermine professional standards or public confidence in nurses, midwives and nursing associates. We also investigate concerns about whether the entry of an individual nurse, midwife or nursing associate on our register may be incorrect, or may have been made as a result of fraud. Our aim in investigating these concerns is to allow our decision makers to make the right decision at the earliest opportunity. Investigations are vital to our overarching objective, which is the protection of the public.
