NMC publishes corporate plan for 2019-2020

Find out what we’re focusing on this year

Today we published our corporate plan for 2019-2020 which sets out our strategic priorities as the independent regulator for nursing and midwifery professionals across the UK.

We know the health and social care system is changing and influencing the way we operate, and with it, the role of nurses and midwives is evolving to meet more complex needs. As a result, our plan is set in the context of those increasing pressures faced by health and care services together with the demands expected of midwives, nurses and nursing associates to provide better, safer care that people have every right to expect and experience throughout their lives.

More than ever, our approach is focussed on being innovative, forward-looking and adaptable to changes in the health and care environment while continuing to build public trust in professional regulation.

We will continue to deliver this in 2019-20 through the following four areas:

  1. Changing our approach: new strategic initiatives that will significantly change how we regulate including our new approach to fitness to practise.
  2. Core regulatory initiatives: work that ensures our regulatory action is effective and efficient to enable better, safer care. Examples are the delivery of our education programme and regulation of nursing associates.
  3. Enhancing our capability and infrastructure: ensuring that we are an effective and efficient organisation now and in the future.
  4. Developing our new strategy for 2020-2025: taking into account the views of stakeholders, and developing our key priorities for 2020-2025
