NMC seeking new council member from Wales

  • Comment

The regulator the Nursing and Midwifery Council has announced that it is seeking to appoint a new council member from Wales.

The appointee will need to be a registrant themselves, and will join the chair and 10 other governing council members in oversight of the NMC.

Applications are open to all nurses and midwives currently registered with the NMC, but any applicant will be required to live or work “wholly or mainly” in Wales.

The closing date for applications is 12pm on 21 March. The successful applicant will receive an allowance worth £12,000 per annum plus expenses.

The new member will replace Carol Shillabeer, chief executive of Powys Teaching Health Board, who took up post in May 2013 in the wake of the last major overhaul of the regulator’s council.

NMC chair Professor Dame Janet Finch said the future holder of the role would contribute to an “important public protection agenda whilst overseeing a significant business transformation”.

“Our key ambition is to become a leading and dynamic regulator,” she said, noting that council members would be expected to play a “crucial role in making that ambition a reality”.

She added: “This is an exciting time to join the NMC. Revalidation is being successfully rolled out and we are embarking on a major programme to define the nurse of the future, as the basis for revising our standards for education.”
