Latest newsletters for midwives, nurses and nursing associates

Published on 26 March 2021

We've published our latest quarterly newsletters for midwives, nurses and nursing associates

Both newsletters feature lead articles to mark one year since the UK went into its first national lockdown to control the spread of Covid-19.

Our midwifery newsletter shares stories from midwife Linda Machakaire and student midwife Alicia Burnett, who spoke to us about their personal experiences over the past year.

Our nursing newsletter also shares stories from care home nurse Kirsty Cartin and nursing associate Drew Scott. They told us about the challenges they've faced during the pandemic and what they've learned.

What else can I expect if I read the midwifery newsletter?

Readers will find all the latest NMC news, including updates to our 'Practising as a midwife in the UK' publication, Andrea Sutcliffe's interview in The Independent about the importance of blame-free culture, and information about our recruitment for fitness to practise panel members. Our Senior Midwifery Advisers, Dr Jacqui Williams and Verena Wallace MBE, also speak about how they're influencing midwifery matters across the NMC.
