NMC reports on significant progress in Guernsey

New Guernsey reports show real improvements

Today we published reports from our return review visit to Guernsey, which clearly show real improvements across the board.

The NMC conducted an extraordinary review on the island in October 2014, which found a number of concerns, many of which have been addressed.

Chief Executive and Registrar, Jackie Smith, said:

"I am delighted that real progress has been achieved through the tireless efforts of staff at HSSD.

"There is stronger leadership in place and the organisational culture is now one where communication and engagement are high priorities, which is a very important change.

"This is a process of continuous development and there is still work to be done. We know that staff at HSSD are not complacent and are committed to making further improvements. We will continue to monitor progress as this work moves into a new phase where ongoing improvements become business as usual."
