Our next five-year strategy

Read our 2020-2025 strategy

Today (Wednesday 29 April) we have published our new strategy for 2020-2025 following approval at our public Council meeting last month and after spending the past year working in co-production with nursing and midwifery professionals on our register, our key partners and the public on a bold new future plan for the NMC.

Commenting on its development, our Chief Executive and Registrar, Andrea Sutcliffe CBE, said:

“After all the hard work we’ve put in over the last year gathering people’s views to develop our future vision and ambition for change, in normal circumstances, making a fuss about our new strategy would have been at the top of our activities right now.

“But like many others in these challenging and unprecedented times - not least our incredible health and care professionals who are doing an incredible job delivering care and support in difficult circumstances - our key focus has been on responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

“While our plans to formally implement this new strategy are on hold until the time is right, I’m proud and grateful that its three core pillars that will guide us over the next five years - regulate, support and influence - have also underpinned our NMC response at this time of crisis by supporting nurses, midwives and nursing associates in all health and social care settings and helping to expand the workforce.

“I’m looking forward to marking our new strategy properly later in the year, and until then, thank you to everybody who has contributed to this importance piece of work.”
