NMC continues to push for urgent legislative change

Published on 21 October 2014

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has today pressed for all political parties to commit to legislative reform.

The NMC’s position statement, published today, outlines how urgent legislative reform would enable it to better protect the public.

For the first time, the statement clearly lays out the key areas of change that the NMC urgently needs in order to become a more modern and effective regulator.

Jackie Smith, Chief Executive and Registrar of the NMC said:

“Both the public and the professions cannot afford to continue to wait for regulatory reform. We must have a definitive and public promise from all the political parties that they will make these important reforms a priority.

“Without that promise the NMC, the public it protects and the professions it regulates, will have to continue working with a legal framework which is “outdated and inflexible” indefinitely.”
