Latest newsletters for midwives, nurses and nursing associates

We've published our latest quarterly newsletter for midwives and our newsletter for nurses and nursing associates

Our midwifery newsletter contains a lead article welcoming three new Council appointees. Justine, Tracey and Gloria are all registered midwives and will be joining us in 2021.

The lead article in our nursing newsletter talks about how we can support you as Covid-19 immunisation begins. We’ve created a webpage with information about Covid-19 vaccines to help you during this time.

What else can I expect if I read the midwifery newsletter?

Readers will find all the latest NMC news, including our response to the recent Ockenden Report, links to useful resources from our midwifery standards web hub and information about our Caring with Confidence animations. There’s also an interesting guest article from Laura Larkin, who spoke to us about the importance of person-centred care.
