NMC response to latest article in The Independent

"We know we have much more to do to create the safe and inclusive environment that supports each of our colleagues to thrive"

Andrea Sutcliffe, NMC Chief Executive and Registrar, said: 

“The Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence’s wide-ranging 2008 report into our performance and culture acknowledged the progress we had made at that time and our commitments to further improve. While we have seen significant change within our organisation since then, I’m very sorry that there are concerns about our culture today. 

“We know we have much more to do to create the safe and inclusive environment that supports each of our colleagues to thrive and fulfil our purpose of protecting the public. To help us get there, we’re appointing independent experts to conduct rigorous reviews of the concerns raised and advise on the further steps we need to take to embed the sustainable change we want to achieve. We’ll be transparent about the findings, recommendations and our action plan.”
