Response to Panorama

Published on 29 September 2022

The NMC has responded to Panorama: Undercover Hospital: Patients at Risk.

Andrea Sutcliffe, NMC Chief Executive and Registrar, said:

“The treatment of patients in vulnerable circumstances that Panorama has revealed is appalling and utterly dreadful to watch. We’ve opened fitness to practise cases for some professionals on our register. We’ll urgently consider whether we need to take steps to restrict their practice while we look into these concerns. Our thoughts are very much with the patients affected, and their families who should never have had to experience this.”
