NMC announces return visit to Guernsey

The planned return review visit will take place between 2 – 4 November 2015

We conducted an extraordinary review visit to the island in October 2014, during which we found serious issues with midwifery practice, the quality of supervision of midwives and student nurse practice placements.

Since the extraordinary review took place, we have worked closely with Guernsey’s Health and Social Services Department and the NHS England South Local Supervising Authority to address these issues. During the return visit, the review teams will review progress with midwifery supervision and the phased return of pre-registration nursing students to their degree programmes and practice placements in Guernsey.

The reports from the return visit will be available later in the year.
