NMC subject to MP questioning

  • Comment
The NMC is set to face further questions about allegations of bullying and racism, after an MP issued a series of parliamentary questions about the regulator and called for a parliamentary debate on the matter.

Livingstone MP, Jim Devine, previously told the Commons that the regulator appeared ‘to be very racist and employ a bullying strategy’ – accusations strongly denied by the NMC (NT News, 26 February, p3). Since then, he and another Labour MP have met informally with junior health minister

Ann Keen to discuss their concerns and are arranging a formal meeting.

Mr Devine has also sent 11 parliamentary questions about the governance of the regulator to be tabled in the Commons. The first, which has already been accepted, asks what the process is for holding the NMC to account ‘for flaws in its governance and internal management’.
