The big question: will the NMC implement positive changes following its 'failed' review?

Do you think the NMC will make postive changes following this review? Add your comments and they could be published in the magazine

The Nursing and Midwifery Council has problems “at every level”, according to a highly critical report into the regulator published today.

The Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence has completed a strategic review of the nursing regulator, which it began in January.

The final report from the review identifies failures in “leadership, strategy, decision making, finance and culture”.

Do you think the NMC will make postive changes following this review? Or will nothing change? What do you think?

  • I think the NMC has crossed a bridge too far and blown a few of them up along the way. For the sake of safeguarding the reputation of the nursing profession, tear up all the contracts and start again with reputable NURSES who know what they are doing. From the legal perspective, there aree plenty of nurses who are also lawyers who I am sure would assist this process if given the call.

  • There have been real problems at the NMC but this could be a turning point at last. But I think unless nurses are willing to pay sufficient they will always a regulator that under performs.

  • I don't think that money is the issue. It is a badly run organisation that is getting the shake up it needs. It needs to be run by someone who is good at running an efficient and effective organisation. Nurses can act as advisers but they may not be best placed to lead the regulatory body.

  • Wake up. This is just another phase in the history of a badly led and corrupt organisation. There will be plasters stuck over the cracks but the end result will be the same -- we will just end up paying more for it.

  • Hello, Nadine

    thank you for the reference but it just takes me to another article by Steve Ford which I have already read but not to the review referred to.
