  • Comment on: NMC fee rise due to take hold on 1 Feb

    christine jones's comment 30 January, 2013 11:01 am

    shameful.... the previous media publication demonstrated that ALL nurses objected to this rise. With the pension contribution increase and our pay freeze, how much more can we be fleeced of? I know the NMC have JUST gone to £100 instead of the £120 they first wanted,... its only a matter of time. Just another note to say that despite this increase of approx 30% they plan to REDUCE the number of fitness to practice cases (which is what they BLAME the increase on) by dealing with some of the cases by a more cost effective way... SO WHY INCREASE OUR FEE????? Remember not so long ago when it was £10 per year???? Thats a 900% increase in the past decade ....

    SHAME ON YOU ..... NMC - you are holding us to ransom!! The surveys have demonstrated that 'we' as nurses/midwives totally reject the proposed rise.... this doesnt matter does it? If you havent enough money from us, then look at ways to be more efficient with the £52m you have from us... surely you can look at other ways apart from getting more money from us.. doing it this way you just as well put our yearly fee up to whatever you want, because without our registration, we cant work!! and you know this..... we have to pay whatever you say.... this doesnt give me much confidence in you as my professional body...

    I a confused.... the NMC are asking US to pay more money each year... BUT with a reduction in services?????? This service is a lifeline for us, as nurses and midvives, to clarify and support us in our professional practice.... shame on you NMC....
