NMC seeks Fitness to Practise panel members

Are you passionate about protecting the public, fairness and transparency?

We’re looking for people to sit on our Fitness to Practise panel for a minimum of 10 days per year.

We consider allegations of impairment of fitness to practise on grounds that include: 

  • misconduct,
  • lack of competence,
  • a caution or conviction for a criminal offence and 
  • physical or mental ill health.

Where a case to answer is found, these allegations are referred to our independent practice committees for determination.

Practice committees are made up of nurse or midwife and lay panel members, and we are currently recruiting to these crucial roles.

Applicants should be genuinely interested in contributing to safeguarding the health and well-being of the public while promoting our values of fairness and transparency with people at the heart of the organisation.

They need to be collaborative yet able to exercise independence of judgement, individuals must also possess high levels of integrity, patience, resilience, confidence and professionalism in dealing with pressured, unpredictable and sensitive situations and, at times, differing points of view.

We welcome candidates from a range of diverse backgrounds who represent the UK population and nurses and midwives.

Interested?

Find out more and apply. The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 18 June 2018.

Final panel interviews will take place Monday 3 September – Friday 21 September 2018
