Published on 18 August 2023

Please see our statement below.

Andrea Sutcliffe, Chief Executive and Registrar at the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), said:

“First and foremost, our thoughts and sympathies are with the parents and families whose lives have been so terribly impacted by these heinous and heart-breaking crimes.

“This has been a long, complex criminal investigation. We’ve kept in close contact with the police and the trust throughout, and will continue to do so.

“Ms Letby remains suspended from our register, and we will now move forward with our regulatory action, seeking to strike her off the register.”
