NMC to consult on fees
Today the Nursing and Midwifery Council announced its intention to consult on a possible increase of its registration fee to £120.
We fully appreciate that the possibility of a fee increase comes at a bad time for nurses and midwives. It is in the interests of nurses and midwives that their regulator has the appropriate resources needed to take swift and fair action against those who fall short of the high standards expected of the professions.
The fee is our principal source of income and without sufficient funds we won’t be able to adequately protect the public.
The consultation date will be announced in due course and the Council will make its decision on the registration fee at their meeting on 1 October.
