NMC says sorry to former vice president

  • Comment
The NMC has written an open letter to former vice president Moi Ali admitting to a ‘number of incidents’ that caused her ‘distress’ during her time in office.

Ms Ali, who became vice president in 2006, had been in the process of taking the regulator to an employment tribunal for racial discrimination. However she has now dropped the case after receiving an apology from the NMC.

The letter, written by current NMC president Jill Crawford, states: ‘It is accepted that during her time as an NMC official a number of incidents took place that caused Ms Ali distress. We regret any hurt she felt. Ms Ali accepts the NMC has taken steps to ensure that lessons are learnt and similar incidents are prevented in the future.’

Nursing Times revealed in March how concerns about the regulator were revealed in the House of Commons by Livingstone MP Jim Devine who alleged that the NMC had ‘an ingrained culture of bullying and racism’.
