Our investigations

Reference: FTP-6

Last Updated 19/09/2018

We investigate serious concerns about a nurse or midwife's fitness to practise which could place patients at risk, or negatively impact public confidence in the nursing and midwifery professions.

We also investigate concerns about whether the entry of an individual nurse or midwife on our register may be incorrect, or may have been made as a result of fraud.

Find out more about what we investigate and how, in our section on Investigations.

The guidance in our library, needs to be read alongside our NMC Guidance during the Covid-19 emergency period. We have new rules that are in force during the period of  the coronavirus emergency that are relevant to how it applies.
