Response to the PSA performance review report

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) today welcome the annual Professional Standards Authority for health and social care (PSA) performance review report 2013 – 2014 [PDF] which reports that the NMC has “achieved improvements across each of its regulatory functions”.

Commenting on the publication of this report, Chief Executive and Registrar of the NMC, Jackie Smith said:

“I am pleased that the PSA’s annual performance review 2013 – 2014 recognises the improvements we have made in all areas of our work. Significantly, we have shown improvement in our fitness to practise function by investigating 87 percent of cases within 12 months and clearing our historic caseload. I also welcome the identification of areas for improvement highlighted by this performance review. 

 “I am also happy to announce that we are undertaking an independent review of our progress to date, against the 15 recommendations made two years ago in the Strategic Review, conducted by the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence (CHRE), the forerunner to the PSA. The review will report in the autumn and I look forward to sharing the results.

“Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank NMC staff for their continued hard work and commitment, without whom we could not have made the improvements and achievements discussed in this year’s review.”
