Our website, NMC Online and our other online services will be unavailable from 07:15 to 10:00 on Saturday 23 January for essential maintenance. We're sorry for any inconvenience.

Please visit nmc.org.uk/COVID19 for information about temporary registration and changes to how we’re operating during this time.



We’ve removed the safeguarding toolkit and resources from our website.

This is because it’s not within our remit as a regulator to provide this type of guidance on specific practice related issues.

However, you should make sure you have enough knowledge about safeguarding to carry out your duties in line with the Code, underpinning guidance on raising concerns and our standards.

Where to find information about safeguarding

It’s important that you deal with any immediate concerns about abuse or neglect under your local safeguarding procedures first.

You should speak to your line manager or employer if you’re not sure what these are.
